I am a graduate of Drew University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I minored in French and Black Studies, which are two subjects I love dearly. I was recently accepted into a PhD program to obtain my doctorate in Sociology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! I will continue my studies there during this upcoming academic year. My previous research, mentorship and tutoring experiences give me confidence that I can help you and thrive in your studies. I have been a mentor in various high school and undergraduate organizations since I was a sophomore. My experience as an academic coach and a tutor in the University Library helped me learn patience and numerous strategies to help students succeed in their studies. I believe tutoring is an expansive experience. Both the tutor and client learn and grow in every session. We increase our knowledge in times of challenge, and I view my role as a tutor is to make room for clients to strengthen their skills. I enjoy helping clients of all ages and have experience in working with all students. One of my favorite things to help clients with is cultivating study and organizational strategies. Having those two things in place help the client maintain their studies.
During my time in undergrad, I studied abroad in France, Martinique and Puerto Rico. I volunteered over 100 hours of service each year as a student volunteer on campus and in the surrounding community. I was a part of many leadership organizations, especially those that helped first-year students acclimate to the university. I enjoy helping those rise to their fullest potential and find the best way to do so is through mentorship and tutoring.
