I am so excited to get to know you and help you along on your journey towards success.
I recently graduated from Davidson College, a small liberal arts school in the heart of nowhere, North Carolina. I majored in history (with a focus on gender) and fell in love with it. To learn about how current social, political, economic, gender, etc. issues developed over time is fascinating. It has now become my passion to teach history in a way that is engaging and presents historical figures as real people that interact just like we do. It is most important to me, when it comes to history, to democratize its study -- you CAN understand it! It just needs to be in words more accessible to you.
In terms of writing and essay help, I did weekly writing sessions with freshmen at my college to help them improve their papers. We would most ofter go over clarity, word choice, grammar, etc. I believe it's important to represent yourself how you want to be represented, and taking the time to learn to write in your own voice is very freeing and makes the writing process less arduous. I promise :)
My philosophy around education is that if you are visibly putting in the effort, I am proud of you. Especially in these very hard times, I am proud of you for pushing through and seeking tutoring help. Education is important and learning is fun! I will try my hardest to make our sessions personable and not like you're just in school for another hour. I recently graduated from college and know exactly what school feels like, especially when you can't see people in person and your entire life seems to be consumed by screens.
In my spare time, I let my brain rest. I strongly believe that taking care of yourself and checking in with your mind and body is the only way to keep your head on straight. I take walks and listen to podcasts, I love music (I write essays with intense soundtracks flooding my ears so that I can feel like I'm doing something world-saving), and I love YA fantasy novels :)
