I have two years of experience working in formal education including day-to-day substituting in Brookline and long-term class coverage in Boston, as well as experience in private, non-essential education (teaching with Education First in Quito, Ecuador). While I very much enjoy classroom teaching, the one-to-one or small-group teaching I did with Education First is something that I found to be most rewarding. Really being able to form close relationships with a small number of students and helping them grow was amazing. I aim to build these types of relationships and connections with students on their paths' to success.
