I'm Karen, a sophomore in Vanderbilt's Peabody College of Education. I am double majoring in Secondary Education (middle and high school education) and European History with additional endorsements in US History and Political Science.
My academic interests are in Soviet/Russian history, especially in Soviet music culture in the 20th century, as well as U.S. involvement and foreign relations during the Cold War. Early U.S. History also is of particular interest to me, but I suspect that has to do with Hamilton! Non-academically, I row here at Vanderbilt (hence the Nike polo), and am involved in several community service organizations, including Next Steps at Vanderbilt, which is a program that pairs Vanderbilt students with other students with intellectual disabilities.
I love working one on one with students; I find that personalized instruction where a tutor can really focus on a single student and adapt to their learning styles is one of the most effective ways of learning for students.
