I am currently a graduating senior and Division I student-athlete at Colgate University. At Colgate, I play softball and am a double major in Peace & Conflict Studies and Philosophy & Religion. Peace and Conflict Studies is an interdisciplinary major focusing on the disciplines of Political Science, International Relations, Sociology, History, and Anthropology. Most of my research and writing is focused on terror and counterterrorism in U.S. foreign policy. From this major, I have obtained an internship working for the Department of State in the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation and hope to pursue a career in the Federal Government. Additionally, as a Philosophy & Religion major, I write up to 9-12 research papers per semester. Philosophy is incredibly useful in sharpening writing skills such as argumentation, structure, and clarity. In fact, Philosophy students are the most successful on the LSAT in comparison to all other majors, even pre-law, due to its emphasis on concise yet deep analysis of some of the world's most challenging problems. Therefore, based on my education and professional experience, I feel most prepared to tutor English, Writing, History, Government, Religion, Philosophy, International Relations, and Politics. Outside of academia, as I stated previously, I am a Division I softball player. I love sports and I believe they have contributed largely to my overall tutoring philosophy and learning style. Just as confidence is crucial in sports, it is crucial to a student's studies. I have worked with children of all ages for over 8 years and have served as a coach for 4 with girls ages 12-18. I find that many of my kids have confidence in one or the other, either sports or education. This is problematic to me. Instilling confidence and showing a student they are capable of doing anything they put their mind to will not only create a positive learning experience for the student but it will increase overall motivation. Nobody wants to try a project with the mindset that they will fail before even starting. It is crucial to give a student positive thoughts of success when tackling any problem, essay, or test while reinforcing the idea that failure is okay and is a necessary piece to success. Additionally, I have been playing guitar for around 12 years and can offer lessons in electric or acoustic. Most of my friends describe me as goofy and loving, caring deeply for the people I impact. However, I am also known for my intense competitiveness and work ethic both in sports and school. I hope to have a relationship with all of my students as I believe knowing the student on a more personal level will not only allow you to see what motivates them but will also instill necessary trust. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
