I graduated from Carleton College with a BA in English and a concentration in French and Francophone Studies. At Carleton, I gained experience teaching critical thinking and writing skills through my work at a summer writing program for high school students. After graduating, I taught English at the middle school and high school levels in Lyon, France, while simultaneously improving my conversational French. I will be living in Washington DC for the summer before starting a Ph.D. program in English literature at Cornell University in the fall. I have a passion for reading, poetry, and learning. I strive to help students read and analyze for themselves, instead of worrying about finding the "right answer." This helps them learn how to think critically about the world around them so that they become more enlightened, aware, and compassionate people. I seek to help each student get the most out of their learning as well as to prepare for the next step in their education.
In my tutoring sessions, I strive to understand how each individual student learns best and to develop personalized teaching strategies. My main goals are to explain concepts clearly, help students work independently, and make learning fun and fascinating.
In my spare time, I like doing many forms of dance, reading novels, hiking, traveling, and eating ice cream.
