I graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Science with a focus on Children’s Development. While I was at Brown I was the president of my all-female acappella group, the Brown’sTones, I performed in a lot of theatre on campus, and I volunteered in pre-school and kindergarten classrooms.
Last year I worked at a charter high school in Boston, MA that supplied students with in-school tutoring during the day. There I tutored Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Spanish and all high school levels of English. I also organized all of the clubs and activities for the school and led the choir. I would never describe myself as just a “Math and Science” or just an “English and History” person, which is why I tutored so many different subjects, but if I had to pick a favorite I would say that tutoring math is my favorite. There’s something great about knowing that an answer is 100% , beyond a shadow of a doubt, correct.
If you ask any of my students they will definitely tell you that I am a fun tutor. I think a tutoring session will go exponentially better if there’s some laughter involved. I’m always down for racing against my students doing math problems or coming up with hilarious study mnemonics for upcoming tests.
This past fall, I lived in Padua, Italy as an au pair for a family with a 6 year-old and an 8 year-old. I got to improve my Italian, drink delicious cappuccino with the other au pairs in the mornings while looking out over the beautiful piazzas, and travel all around Italy. I even went to the largest chocolate festival in all of Europe! Now that I’m back in the states, I work at a noted university in a lab that studies how environment and socioeconomic status affect children’s brain development. Specifically, I work on a project that studies the efficacy of HeadStart programs in New York.
