As a PhD student, I have enjoyed working as a formal tutor for over two years with both college and graduate-level students. Most of my tutoring work has been with ESL students, although I have tutored in the areas of sociology, English, history, religious studies, philosophy, women's studies, and others. I also served as a teaching assistant at Drew University on multiple occasions, which allowed me to regularly offer both individual and group tutoring sessions in various subjects. As a graduate student and professional tutor who is passionate about education, I hope to inspire others to become life-long learners and critical thinkers.
My scholarly writings have been published in peer-reviewed journals and books and I have presented award-winning papers at professional academic conferences. For more than five years, I have been co-editor of an academic journal that focuses on the intersection between art, popular culture, and religion. During my graduate-level studies, I received awards for maintaining the highest GPA of all doctoral students and also for my commitments to academic excellence and social ethics. These achievements ultimately led to invitations to guest lecture on various topics at Drew University on multiple occasions.
These experiences and accomplishments have enabled me to become a confident tutor, writer, and communicator. As a professional tutor, I always aim to speak clearly, to listen patiently, and to relate to others respectfully. I would love the opportunity to work with any student who could benefit from my areas of expertise.
