I'm a recent college graduate with a B.A. in Politics. In college, I worked as a Writing Center Tutor for three years, where I helped college students develop their writing projects across the social sciences in humanities. As a Writing Tutor, I coached students through all steps of the writing process, from developing a research paper and crafting a thesis statement, to editing for clarity and grammar. After graduating, I lived overseas for a year where I worked as an ESL teacher. I worked in elementary school classrooms and developed lesson plans where students practiced English in an interactive environment to improve their conversational speaking and listening skills.

What is your teaching philosophy?
By working as a tutor, I have learned the difference between teaching and lecturing. My goal as a tutor is to understand what challenges a student faces in order to guide them through their projects by fostering study skills. I aim to coach students so that they can navigate their coursework and exams with mastery without a tutor.
