I graduated in 2011 from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester MA. There I received my Bachelor's of Arts in Classics (that is, Latin and ancient Greek literature) with a concentration in Peace & Conflict Studies; right now I'm taking classes to ready myself for grad school for Psychology.
During undergrad, I tutored Latin for the Classics Honors Society and volunteered as an ESL teacher. After graduating, I moved to Spain and built on my volunteer experience by obtaining a TEFL certficate and tutoring and teaching there for the duration of my visa; when I returned to Philadelphia, I started working as a classroom ESL teacher for Kaplan International.
Maybe because of these experiences, my favorite subjects to help with tend to be those most involved with language - Latin, Spanish, Reading/Writing skills - as well as Psychology, a more recent passion. I'm also happy to assist students with math for test prep like the SAT and GRE. As a tutor I would consider my style to be supportive but challenging - I want my students to realize how capable they are, and to do that, they need to work! I believe in a relaxed and friendly environment but I know my clients' time is valuable, and we'll spend it as effectively as possible.
