I am currently working on my Masters in Special Education at George Mason University. I graduated with a BA in government from Hamilton College in 2013. After graduating, I worked as an educational tour guide in Washington, DC teaching students from all over the world about the American political process. Currently, I work as a substitute teacher at a small private school in Northern Virginia and in the Falls Church City public schools. Although a Northern Virginia native, I have lived in London and Geneva as well.
While my passions are teaching civics, American history and French, I also help students prepare for the SSATs, PSATs and the SAT Verbal and Critical Reasoning sections. I enjoy working with students on all stages of their writing. My favorite parts of teaching is the moment when students finally understand a concept and watch them apply their newly learned knowledge.

Q & A
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
The first session is where we lay the foundation. It is important for me to get to know the student and his or her strengths and weaknesses. We will look at what the best methods are for achieving their goals.
