I graduated from Stanford University in 2013 with a BA in Human Biology and a minor in Political Science. Throughout high school and college, I tutored students ranging from age 4 to age 18 for several organizations. This provided me with a wide variety of material, lesson plans, and experiences that motivated me to work as a full-time AmeriCorps tutor in a public school in Chicago following graduation. I spent this year tutoring and mentoring fifth graders, providing whole classroom support and leading small group pull-outs. I also led an after school program focusing on homework help and Common Core skills for fifth and sixth grade. I have a deep understanding of the Common Core in both English Language Arts and Math and of what students are expected to learn in the classrooms. Most importantly, I have a passion for tutoring and building up skills that enable students to become successful in and out of the classroom. I love individual tutoring because I love customizing lessons to appeal to the student's interests. I believe in leading tutoring sessions with enthusiasm, positivity, and patience. I am currently in the second year of my Master's in Social Work program at Boston University.

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I believe that a great tutoring session stems from genuine teacher/student relationships. I would spend the first session getting to know the student and building a mutual agreement on what tutoring sessions should look like.
