While working towards my B.A. at Bowdoin College in Maine, I researched and wrote multiple academic papers per class under direct guidance from research librarians and professors. Now, I'm using that strong foundation in my career as a reporter while continuing to learn and grow through professional relationships and enrichment opportunities.
Prior to starting in journalism, I spent over five years working with middle and high school students as a tutor and one year as a classroom teacher in rural Slovakia. I have experience getting creative while teaching to specific standards, and I enjoy helping people set goals -- putting in place organizational systems that focus in on how to get from Point A to Point B. After years of working under intense deadline pressure, these systems have been crucial to me in my own work.
As a tutor, I want to continue building relationships with students and help them hone their written communication skills. Being able to write clearly (and creatively) has been a professional help and a necessary outlet in my own life, and I'm excited to share what I've learned.
