I recently graduated summa cum laude from Augsburg College with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor concentration in Spanish. Now I am happily employed at Carleton College in Northfield as an evening supervisor in the library – I love it! My plan is to eventually go on to get my Ph.D. in Sociology.
Helping others learn brings me great joy, and I’ve had the privilege of teaching people from a variety of ages and backgrounds. I was a supplemental instructor for the Statistical Analysis course at Augsburg College and also served as a tutor through the Academic Skills Office there. I have tutored high schoolers at the MN Internship Center and worked with students of all ages – from elementary schoolers to adults – at the non-profit program Safe Place: Homework Help. A particular highlight of mine is the summer I spent teaching English to adults as a certified ESL assistant at the International Education Center in downtown Minneapolis.
All these experiences have helped me develop a variety of strategies to adapt to different learners’ needs and learning styles. I tutor a wide range of subjects, such as ACT prep, math, writing, Spanish, and Latin. Whether the math section of the ACT is making you nervous or you need some extra help keeping up in Spanish, I am confident that together, we’ll figure out how to meet your current academic goals and develop the skills you need to face future challenges.
Outside academia, I love to read – I work in a library, after all! I’m also an avid journaler. I enjoy learning languages – in addition to Spanish and Latin, I’m currently working on French. I’m always listening to music, particularly Broadway musicals. And, finally, I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I get compared to Hermione Granger all the time, and that’s just fine with me!
