Education

Barnard College - BA, Political Science

Experience

My love of traveling has helped shape the subjects I enjoy the most. It has also determined the ones I choose to tutor in. Language is a love of mine, especially French. I also enjoy History, not only in the U.S., but throughout the World. Understanding why things work and how they have come to be is intriguing to me. I strive to help other students understand the answers and come to enjoy the subjects just as much as I do. I obtained a Political Science degree, as well as one in the study of human rights. I attended Barnard College. I co-taught through Peace by Peace, providing students with conflict resolution techniques that did not involve violence. I joined the Peace Corps after I graduated, providing education on health care at the local center of a village. The difficulties in communicating I experienced trying to speak to people in a foreign language helped me to better my tutoring skills. I learned how to be more patient and understanding of the needs of others. I tutor in nearly any subject a student needs help in, but I like to focus on my passions. French, Writing, Literature, and History are my focuses. Assisting students with their studying skills and helping them achieve their goals is a main goal of mine.
