I believe in the power of young people, and by tutoring I help students find that power for themselves. My background in education started at St. Lawrence University, where I obtained my Bachelors Degree in both Global Studies and Communication Arts. Currently, I am in graduate school at Northeastern Illinois University to obtain my M.A.T. in Elementary Education.
My tutoring experience began during my undergraduate years, and continues today. I tutored writing for three years at St. Lawrence University, primarily with undergraduate and graduate students.
I developed upon these skills upon graduation by participating in a year of service with Americorps by working in a middle school. Following that, I served as a teaching assistant in a Kindergarten classroom for two years and acted as the morning supervisor for all K-2 students. I tutored a wide range of K-6 students during this time in both math and writing.
My favorite subject to tutor is writing, followed by reading. I have years of experience tutoring writing, and alongside the wealth of knowledge I have, I've found many ways to make writing fun and engaging even for struggling students.
Some of my hobbies and interest include comic books, Star Wars, poetry, and photography. I often try and include pop culture into my tutoring sessions to enhance student engagement, especially when working with younger students.
