I received a BA in English Literature from Wesleyan University, a small liberal arts college in Middletown, CT. After earning my degree last May, I moved to Pittsburgh in September to do a year of volunteer service work for a local nonprofit. I've been enjoying exploring my new city, and I've loved all the people I've met here. In true liberal arts fashion, I have taken courses across a diverse range of disciplines, earning a Certificate in International Relations for completing courses across the government, history, economics, Spanish, and religion departments. Throughout my college years, I worked in multiple tutor rolesas a teaching intern for a philosophy and history course, as a volunteer tutor at a local middle school, and as a writing tutor for all levels of college students, including four senior thesis writers. My favorite part of tutoring is getting to know my students as people, learning about what gets my students excited about learning and hearing about my students' successes and failures, academically and otherwise. As a recent college grad myself, I have always experienced huge satisfaction when my studies finally click. I love seeing my students experience a breakthroughthat moment when a lightbulb goes off and I can see my student visibly start to make sense of the work.
