After graduating with a bachelor's degree in history with highest honors, I am now beginning a Masters/PhD Program in history at the University of Connecticut to further develop my historical research and writing skills. I have a great passion for helping students, which developed during my undergraduate years, especially while working as a Supplemental Instruction Leader (group study session leader) for history. I worked with students on a range of topics including not only historical content, but essay writing, time management, and test preparation as well. I thus tutored many college students during my senior year, and upon graduating in May 2014, became the Coordinator of that program, supervising 25-30 tutors each semester.
My passion is education, hence my decision to pursue a graduate degree in history to further my teaching abilities. I find the research, writing, historical analysis, and teaching involved in my graduate program to be both demanding and rewarding. I love the opportunity to work with students on history and writing, since I firmly believe a teacher should be enthusiastic about their subject to instill interest and motivation in their students. Thus I want to use these skills and my experience to guide students in reaching their greatest individual potential in both academics and life skills.
I am available all months throughout the year and can be flexible with my schedule. Please feel free to contact me at any point with further questions regarding my availability, experience, or qualifications.

Q & A

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

If a student in struggling with a particular subject, I believe that breaking the topic down into smaller, less-intimidating parts will greatly increase a student's self-confidence. Increased self-confidence can then lead to a more positive outlook toward the subject matter as students develop basic skills needed to master more complicated concepts. Additionally, having a tutor who is enthusiastic about the material can provide further support to students who might otherwise find a subject too intimidating.
