I graduated from Georgia Tech in May 2015 with a B.S. in Global Economics and Modern Languages. Throughout my four years in university, I worked as a nanny for a family in Atlanta with 3 children, aged 3 through 12, and tutored them and assisted with homework. I also volunteered at an after school program for underprivileged kids called Atlanta Union Mission where I worked with small groups of elementary, middle, and high school students on homework assignments.
After I graduated from Georgia Tech in May, I moved to Munich and worked as an au pair for five months. I used this opportunity to travel around Europe and learn German. Although I studied Spanish throughout high school and college and am fluent in the language, I love learning about new cultures and languages and am excited to continue to grow in my linguistic abilities.
I think that a good teacher can make all of the difference in a student's life. As a child, I believed that I was bad at math and did not see the value in learning it. However, I had a math teacher in sixth grade who pushed and encouraged me and made me love it. I then went on to take advanced math classes throughout middle and high school and then attend a technical university with a heavy math emphasis. I believe that many students are disinterested in academics because they feel discouraged, and I hope to turn this around in the same way that my sixth grade math teacher did for me through persistence and positive reinforcement.
