I am a current undergraduate student at Penn State University studying Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I have worked with students of various ages, assisting at a preschool in summers, interning at a local elementary school, and tutoring students in high school. My favorite subjects to tutor are English and Reading, and I also tutor in Math (which I have grown to love more recently-- we've had a complicated relationship) and Science. I especially like creative writing, and even won a poetry competition years ago. I believe that learning should be an important part of everyone's life. Mistakes should only be seen as opportunities to grow, and questions are always welcome. Other than teaching, I play ultimate frisbee, dance in the styles of ballet, jazz, and contemporary, and play piano.
I have danced for a majority of my life, currently doing contemporary, ballet, and jazz with the Vole Dance Company. I play on the Penn State Women's Ultimate Frisbee team, and played through high school as well. I was recently elected to be a THON chair for my club, a fundraiser that benefits families affected by childhood cancer. I enjoy music, and have played the clarinet and piano.
