I am a student of English, Spanish, and Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Dickinson College. I live in Maryland but hop between there and PA pretty often.
I am of the tea-drinking, dog-petting, fire-roaring, book-reading type. I enjoy long walks on the fogged Scottish moors, discussions of film, and helping others. That last one is why I'm here.
I have a great love of learning and desire to share it with others. I've been teaching, tutoring, and advising from the playground to the classroom and finally to campus in both professional and personal roles. Supporting others and helping them reach their academic goals is a goal of mine as well. I value making learning and academic confidence-building accessible to everyone, no matter where you're at.
I have experience tutoring elementary, middle school, and high school students. At college, I am an Academic Co-Curricular Excellence mentor for statistically underrepresented college students. While I am confident in teaching many different subjects, my passions lie in English, Spanish, writing, reading, Math, Speech, and History. I also am confident in coaching Basketball, Strength Training, Yoga, and Nutrition, which are some of my biggest interests.
As a tutor, I prioritize meeting the student where they are at and building up confidence and a love of learning. I am patient, dedicated, enthusiastic, and compassionate. I try to have fun in everything I do, and in my experience it is not at all hard to have fun when teaching.
Learning is one of the few things we never stop doing for as long as we live. It may not hurt to enjoy it, and maybe even excel at it with a little hard work.
