I am an experienced teacher and tutor who graduated from American University with a BA in International Environmental Peacemaking and Print Journalism as well as a minor in Arabic Language. I first became interested in tutoring when I was a student through a literacy advocates program where I tutored in Washington DC. Post-graduation I spent time learning organic farming techniques on a farm in Hawaii where I led student tours and taught about sustainability. After that I moved to China where I taught English to a wide range of children and adult learners. I taught large groups of students in a classroom setting as well as one-on-one classes to individuals. After returning to the US, I continued tutoring some of the students I had worked with in China online. Before the pandemic, I ran an afterschool program in one of Buffalo's public schools for grades K-8. I created all the core curriculum, helped with homework and organized events for the students. I think a thirst for knowledge is one of the most valuable gifts you can give someone. I look forward to working with you or your child and helping him or her learn to love learning!
