I am a third-year law student at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and will be working as at attorney at a large corporate law firm when I graduate. I completed my undergraduate degree at NYU, double majoring in journalism and dramatic literature.

I am passionate about education, specifically reading and writing, and believe my enthusiasm, organization and professionalism would make me an asset to your company.

In law school, I was selected by a professor to be a teaching assistant for a Legal Writing course for 16 first-year students. I attended weekly classes, often providing input and co-teaching several classes. I also held weekly office hours, where I met with students individually and in small groups to help with their assignments, including working on their writing style and structure. In addition, I reviewed and edited students’ assignments, providing individualized feedback and advice.

As a Constitutional Law teaching assistant, I co-taught weekly review sessions of over 75 students, where I explained and reviewed course material. I reviewed practice problems, coached students on proper study and reading strategies, and answered questions. I quickly learned best practices to keep all of the students engaged and focused, encouraging student participation and leading class discussions.

I also volunteered with iMentor, providing one-on-one support to two high school freshman through online communication and in-person meetings. I provided structure and motivation, helping my mentees plan their future college and career goals, as well as study strategies and day-to-day organization. Working closely with my two mentees, I determined their individual communication and learning styles, as well as their strengths and weaknesses, and used this knowledge to tailor our sessions to best meet their needs.

Finally, in high school, I tutored elementary school students in math and reading comprehension, helping with homework and assignment organization. I understand that every student has different academic, emotional and social needs and I am confident in my ability to help each student reach his or her potential.
