I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Tufts University with a B.A. in Peace and Justice Studies and a minor in English. I am currently in the first year of the Masters of Social Work program at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. At Tufts I conducted research about educational equity, inclusion, and integration, and I've continued to pursue my passion at the Brown School. I've always loved the teaching and tutoring opportunities I've been fortunate to have, and I've been lucky to tutor a wide age range from grade schoolers to high schoolers. I enjoy teaching a wide range of topics, and I've had particular success coming up with creative and individualized methods to prepare students for the critical reading and the writing sections of standardized tests (including private school admission tests). I've also had a great time engaging students with English class material, as well as coaching them through presentations and public speaking and it is exciting for me to see my students processing and thinking about new topics, and to see them become more confident in their own ideas and in their writing. Through my studies I've had the opportunity to be immersed in the topics I'm passionate about and I look forward to the opportunity to share these passions for essay writing, English (including the critical reading, vocabulary, and grammar portions of standardized tests), and history. I've been lucky to have a wonderful educational experience and I want to help other students be in the best position to have their own. In my free time I love being outdoors, trying out new recipes, and reading. My guilty pleasure is getting too emotionally involved in reality TV.
