I earned my bachelor's degree as a double major in sociology and political science in May of 2015.
As a Varsity Tutor, I strive to meet my student's needs by incorporating strategies for skill-building, making higher-level connections, and including visual as well as well auditory examples. Work experiences that support my service as a Varsity Tutor include the following: three years working with college writing and ESL students as a paraprofessional writing tutor; two years working with elementary school-aged children as a YMCA day camp counselor and after-school teacher; one year working as a camp counselor serving youths in the fifth and sixth grades at a community development organization in Pittsburgh; and my current position as a City Year AmeriCorps member in Boston Public Schools, where I provide whole class as well as individual support to high school students.
Empowering students is my passion. I believe that students are just as much teachers as teachers are students, and together we can create knowledge and empower one another to achieve educational success and impact positive change in society.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
"I never let my schooling interfere with my education." - Mark Twain. I believe that education is a life-long endeavor. Students are as just as much teachers as teachers are students. Together we create knowledge and empower one another to impact positive change and growth in society.
