I truly love learning in all subjects, both STEM and liberal arts. However, I know how frustrating it can be to feel completely helpless when a particular subject, topic, or problem just doesn't click. I love helping students become more comfortable in even their least favorite subjects. I have worked as a tutor in all subject areas for the past four years, but I currently specialize in English, Math, and Computer Science. My favorite subject to tutor is Computer Science. Programming, especially in 2018, is such an incredibly powerful skill to have, and I love to share my knowledge and passion for technology with my students.
I am also very familiar with standardized tests, as I just completed the college application process (phew!). I graduated from Convent of the Sacred Heart in NYC, and I will be pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Linguistics at Cornell University. I know how difficult it can be to navigate the world of testing and application requirements, and I want to help students feel as prepared as possible for their own college-prep journeys. I work as a tutor because to me, the best feeling in the world is not just watching my students' performance improve, but seeing their love for learning grow, too.
Outside of tutoring, I love to read, make music, and work on my own programming projects. I am currently studying iOS app development outside of school, and I hope to soon start building and releasing my own iPhone apps! I am also incredibly passionate about music, and I am learning how to create my own music in Ableton Live. My favorite artists right now are Chance the Rapper and Foster the People, but honestly my answer will probably be different tomorrow!
