I am a B.A. French Studies candidate at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. With only three semesters left in my undergraduate career, I want to broaden my experiences by passing on the skills I have learned to students struggling with school or wishing to strengthen their knowledge. In high school, I participated in the Backpack Tutoring program where I helped elementary students, most of whom were in the ESL program, realize their full potential that may have been compromised due to language barriers. Additionally, I tutored fellow French students in college during my spare time. As you may guess, my favorite subject to tutor is French, but I also enjoy tutoring English, History, Human Geography, Writing, Public Speaking, and ACT-English, Reading, and Writing. As a former magazine editor, I have worked extensively with editing writing in both MLA and AP styles; and as a former radio DJ and radio show co-host, I am now more confident in my public speaking than ever. I would love to use these experiences to help those struggling in both of these areas. I am a big fan of visual and auditory learning (I love radio after all!), but I fully understand that no student follows the same learning process, and I am flexible and patient in this sense. I am straightforward and honest, two characteristics I feel are important for giving constructive criticism. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, biking, listening to NPR, volunteering at the Animal Humane Society with cat adoption, and dreaming about going to grad school for international relations.
