I enjoy tutoring because it's all about helping students reach their academic potential, and gain confidence that they will be able to perform to the best of their abilities. I'm a political science major, also studying human rights, but my interests stem far beyond those disciplines - and I know all of my students are equally complex individuals. We all come to testing and school work from different academic places, but the skills we work on developing are the same: the ability to think, to express, and to comprehend.
Reading critically and writing eloquently are difficult arts, and we're all constantly learning and growing in our abilities as we practice. Everyone has a voice that they can channel into writing, and I want to help people find and refine those voices, from college essays to high school writing assignments and beyond. Together we can practice and strengthen the skills that the ACT tests for, so that students' abilities to think and read critically, and discern important truths from text, last long after testing season. I'm excited to work with you!
