For almost ten years now I've been teaching students of all ages, from across the globe, about everything from Ancient Rome to particle physics. Driven by a passion for discovery, and a desire to pass that love of learning on to others, I first began working with students as a Museum Educator at a local history museum, making the world of nineteenth century America come alive for visitors. In high school, I worked as a teaching assistant in a number of science and world history courses, providing support for both honors and remedial students to give them the tools they needed to succeed. As an undergraduate, I continued to pursue my passion for education, volunteering to teach local high school students in my free time and also serving as an undergraduate tutor for my residential college, where I provided assistance with everything from GRE prep to essay-writing.
In May 2020 I graduated magna cum laude from UC Berkeley, having earned degrees in both History and Classics. I spent much of my senior year traveling around Europe and the United States, conducting research at archaeological sites such as Pompeii, Ostia, and Nimes, and working in archives at Princeton, Harvard, and Stanford in preparation for the completion of senior theses on cultural change in the Roman empire and on undergraduate Latin pedagogy, respectively. During my undergraduate years, I also worked as a research assistant in a number of different laboratories, studying ancient ceramics, medieval manuscripts, and Roman iconography, and spent a summer excavating the villa of the Roman emperor Hadrian with Columbia University.
I intend to eventually pursue a PhD in Ancient History, but until then I look forward to tutoring with Varsity!
