As an academically inclined, college educated individual with a host of teaching experience, I would make an ideal tutor in history, political science, and english. I can make a real difference boosting GPAs or standardized test scores!

In the summer after my sophomore year at Skidmore College, I was a professional tutor at Lindamood Bell, an individualized national tutoring service aimed at elementary and middle school students. Over my time at Lindamood, I worked with a range of kids, ages 6-15, to improve reading, comprehension and math. At Skidmore, where I double majored in History and Political Science, I was a Peer Mentor, or Teacher’s Assistant, for a freshman class on British Naval history. In addition to grading papers, hosting various programs on academic life on campus, and generally being a resource for the first year students, I was given the opportunity to develop a curriculum and teach a class on the historical accounts of Captain James Cook’s death on Valentines Day in Hawaii in 1779. Through these experience, I gained all the skills necessary to tutor students of varying levels and on a broad range of subjects.

Having graduated college in 2015, I spent the last two years straddling the academic and policy communities working at a think tank called the Atlantic Council in Washington DC. Although I was not tutoring students at the time, I was engaged in the politics of international relations, and enmeshed in the policy and academic literature that serve to strengthen my ability as a tutor and teacher.
