I am currently a sophomore at Bryn Mawr College. In the 8th grade, due to my exceptional performance in my advanced math class, I was offered the opportunity to tutor for extra credit. Since then, I have enjoyed tutoring and teaching others in a variety of subjects in grade levels PreK-11th for volunteer work and in paid settings. In high school, I took advantage of tutoring opportunities through my membership in Math, English, and National Honor Societies, and National Beta Club. I am working towards a Bachelors degree in Political Science and am also studying Middle Eastern Studies. While I hope to eventually pursue a Juris Doctris, education is a passion I would like to stay involved in throughout my career. I have worked with students of all ages inside and outside of school settings. I interned at the Fairmount Water Works where I assisted in an educational capacity. I tutor in Math, Social Studies, and Social Sciences. For a complete list, check out my subject list below. My favorite subject to tutor is math as there are many different ways I can explore with my students as to how to approach the problem in a way that makes sense to them. Math, especially, requires a lot of patience and it's incredibly rewarding to watch a student become proficient in a skill set they once thought impossible. My teaching philosophy and tutoring style emphasize that students learn in a variety of ways and one must first recognize where each individual student is coming from in terms of learning style and resources before attempting to address the academia. Outside of academia, I am very passionate about acting and social justice. Both of these interests, I believe, help me greatly in connecting with my students and supporting their learning. I have clearances available at your request. I was accepted to such prestigious institutions as NYU and the University of Richmond among others. I hold several leadership positions in my school community including president of pre-law society and Access Services coordinator. I look forward to working with your child!
