I believe education is essential to maintaining both individual fortitude and strengthening the wellbeing of community. We all deserve to learn in the way that best engages us and the world around us.
I've worked with students as a tutor in high school through the National Honors Society. In college, I tutored peers on study skills and organizational habits. As a graduate student, I worked as a teaching assistant through the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth at Princeton University, teaching a high school Epidemiology course. Professionally, I've tutored children on the Autism spectrum with additional learning disabilities including ADHD and Dyslexia.
I earned a Bachelor's of Arts (BA) at Case Western Reserve University in Medical Anthropology and Cognitive Science. I earned my Master of Arts (MA) degree, also at CWRU School of Medicine, in Bioethics and Medical Humanities. I'm still deciding whether to go back to school to pursue a PhD in either Special Education or Disability Studies.
I tutor reading, writing, history, science, humanities, social studies, math, and more specific topics including research techniques, anthropology, and journalism.
I love tutoring in history and social studies because, while many believe history is written in stone, there are so many nuances to continually discover. Human biases exist everywhere, even in subjects seeming as concrete as science. It's fun to peel back the layers of why or how something was written or "discovered."
In my tutoring, I prioritize open and honest communication. I welcome all types of feedback. I want to make sure each student is connecting to the material in the way that works best for their unique learning style. I don't show or tolerate any form of disrespect or discrimination.
