I am a graduate of the College of William and Mary 2014 with a B.A. in Linguistics and History. Currently I am a M.A./Ph.D student in Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My current research deals with how language is used and how understanding can change in differing contexts, for example how people define what counts as a lie, and how our brains process emojis. At the University of Illinois, I've taught several linguistics courses, including the popular Linguistics 100 introductory course. I spent a semester abroad in Sevilla, Spain during my undergraduate studies and that remains one of the best experiences of my life.
I have experience tutoring in several subjects though anything language-related is nearest to my heart. I have always been a gifted writer, and I enjoy being able to pass on that knowledge to learners. I am a talented editor with thorough knowledge of English grammatical intricacies that one might need to learn for English class, the SAT, the GRE, etc.
My interests have always included sports and music; I am a former hurdler and long time trumpet player.
