I am an encouraging, easy-going person, and my enthusiasm for communication and expression pushes students to bring their best effort. I meet students where they are, at any age or level, to strengthen their skills and achieve their goals.
When it comes to English and Writing tutoring, I regularly work with adult learners approaching university as first generation college students, international NGO professionals improving their written communication, and US military service-members prepping for career development exams. From those experiences, I have learned to communicate clearly and efficiently, helping students achieve understanding and confidence from our first session. I bring in the best support resources (including easy to understand videos, games, websites, and handouts) to support the individual learning styles and needs of the student.
In my work with students who are focusing on the social sciences and humanities, I also draw on a wide range of experiences. With my Masters degree in International Affairs and BA in Liberal Arts, I have the academic foundation necessary to work with diverse student needs. My curiosity and passion for subjects like history, political science, the humanities, and general social studies is contagious because I make connections between complex or theoretical ideas and every-day human experiences. I love the process of trying to understand how the world works, and I love to share that curiosity with anyone I meet.
