I am a recent graduate from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development and Minor in Education. With concentrations in Cognitive Development as well as Social and Personality Development, I have a holistic approach to education and view learning as a life-long process. I have worked with a variety of students with different backgrounds (i.e., racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic) in diverse contexts; while studying Child Diversity and Development abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, I was introduced to the Danish phrase "en god barndom" (translated as "the good childhood") and found that it is essential to encourage autonomy and help students to become independent learners. With Vygotsky's zone of proximal development in mind, I try to scaffold learning as I work with individuals, so that they could progressively have a stronger understanding and ultimately a greater independence in the learning process.
