I recently graduated from Drexel University in June 2014 with a Bachelor's of Arts in English and a Bachelor's of Science in Nutrition and Food Sciences. Teaching was a core value reflected in the curriculum for both of my undergraduate majors. As a nutrition major, I was afforded the opportunity to teach nutrition education classes in underserved neighborhoods and elementary schools. As an English major, I took pride in helping fellow students and aspiring writers to refine their thoughts and ideas in essays and creative compositions alike. In my current position as a laboratory technician in a university setting, I work directly with students in a lab setting on a daily basis. I have worked as a teaching assistant for university-level microbiology courses and I also have expansive experience in writing, literary analysis, and reading comprehension, as I have composed original research in English literature, peer reviewed many of my colleagues' papers, and have served as an editorial intern for a published literary journal and as a weekly arts journalist for a local online publication.
Since graduating from college and starting my primary occupation as a lab technician, I found that I have less opportunities to help students and to improve their writing and analytical reading skills, which is a profound passion of mine. Tutoring students in English literature and composition enables me to keep doing something that I love to do. In my spare time, I also enjoy painting, learning computer programming, baking, and reading anything and everything that I can.
