I recently graduated from Georgia College with a B.A. in Geography and a minor in Environmental Science. My father came to American from a low-income village in south Wales, and his regular reminders of how different that life was for him reminded me not to take the opportunities I have for granted. During my education, I put that perspective into action and was fortunate enough to travel to the Caribbean for a study abroad class and again for a research conference, tutor three courses, and participate in creating an organic garden on campus.
I like to engage with students on a personal level and try to transmit not only the information I have, but the enthusiasm I have about learning. I may not always have the answer to their questions in memory, but figuring out the answers alongside the students helps them understand the process, and teaches me new things along the way. My broad geography education solidified for me the importance of interdisciplinary approaches and putting things into spatial and temporal context. If someone is struggling with a subject, with a little creativity you can find a way to explain it in terms of something they are proficient in.
I hope to tutor a variety of subjects in the humanities and environmental sciences, and to help ignite some sparks of enthusiasm for learning new perspectives.
