Hi! My name is Elena and I'm going into my senior year at Brown University. I am obtaining a BA in both Psychology and Literary Arts and absolutely love my multidisciplinary coursework.
This summer, I am looking for opportunities to tutor children and teens to help them develop a love of learning. I have been working with children since I started high school, first as a volunteer teacher's aid in local elementary schools with kindergarten and first graders. I later volunteered for two years and then was hired for two years as a classroom intern at Horizons at Greens Farms Academy, a summer program for underserved youth in my community. Through this program, I was responsible for teaching reading, writing, and math to first graders. As an intern, I ran a small reading group and worked through the program's literacy intervention program by creating my own worksheets and activities to engage the students with their reading. Last summer, I worked at the Berkeley Early Learning Lab and helped conduct an infant study focused in language development. Outside of my research, I tutored four-year-old twin boys in reading, writing, and math.
I am a confident tutor in Psychology and English as I have been passionate and successful in these areas through high school and college.
