Writing is never work. Even if it's an essay, an exam, a homework assignment--anything that should elicit stress--a certain joy exists within it. Maybe that solidifies why I chose to major in creative writing, with my future aspiration to become an author or editor. Currently, I'm a freshman at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, where I'm also studying rhetoric, sociology, anthropology, and theatre. Both in college and in high school, I've been extremely active in whatever English-related programs I could find, from book clubs to poetry contests. I even had a poem submitted in the Apple Pi Literary Magazine! With Varsity Tutors, I hope to spread my passion for writing and literature to curious, hard-working students.
Some of my work experience has been less-than-conventional. I also work at Party Princess Productions in Boston, where I've been smothered in face paint and sung every "Frozen" song in existence. Though it's not very common to say that my job involves navigating through hoop-skirts and character shoes, the party princess world has taught me how to communicate with, listen to, educate, and learn from children. Working as a summer camp counselor at the New England School of Performing Arts, as well as a as a hayride guide at Smolak Farms, has also contributed to my experience working with kids.
Naturally, reading and writing are among my interests. (J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series and Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray" are my favorites!). I've also been involved with acting throughout my life and am a member of Trinity College's Improv group. Overall, I'd consider myself to be an optimistic and creative person. Both positivity and creativity are crucial to early learning, and I try to incorporate them into my tutoring.
