I graduated from Wesleyan University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Studies and College of Letters (a multi-disciplinary program that includes English, history and philosophy). I wrote my senior honors thesis on the 1980 Berber Spring in Algeria and 2011 Libyan Revolution. During a semester abroad in Paris, I tutored elementary school children as an English language assistant. While at Wesleyan, I also worked as an ESL instructor, tutoring a Moroccan immigrant and helping him to gain citizenship and employment. Education has given me the opportunity to find what I am passionate about, and I hope to help others gain that same opportunity through tutoring. I tutor in English, French, and standardized tests, and especially enjoy helping students think about subjects creatively and from new angles. My largest interest, outside of education, is music. I worked throughout college as a music director at Wesleyan's radio station, and currently work as a producer and staff writer for Afropop Worldwide, a non-profit radio show dedicated to African music and music of the African diaspora. I also love watching independent films and reading fiction and philosophy. I love living in Brooklyn, but I enjoy leaving the city to go hiking, and I bike throughout the city as much as possible.
