EducationUniversity of Maryland-Baltimore County - Bachelors, Environmental Studies and Cultural Anthropology
ExperienceMy greatest strength is my flexibility; I use a variety of approaches for each subject and each question. I respect my students' opinions, even if they differ from my own. I work hard to frame questions in a way they can understand. Tutoring is most effective when students are provided with the correct tools; it's more about them developing confidence to reach their full potential than rigid instruction. I tutor many subjects, including ecology, study skills, writing, public speaking, environmental science, math, and SAT prep. I attended the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), where I was in the Honors College and received a four-year humanities scholarship. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Cultural Anthropology. As a college student, I was a Reading Partners volunteer. This organization pairs volunteers with a student who is reading below grade level. I was also a volunteer at the campus English Language Institute. I assisted a South Korean student with improving his English and adjusting to living the U.S. After obtaining my degree, I was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Malaysia. I have a passion for travel. I had the opportunity to study abroad for one semester at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. During this time, I gained a new viewpoint on education, and an appreciation for international current events. This experience motivated me to continually work for improvement. In addition to travel, I like to sing, catch a Ravens game here and there, read, cook, hike, and go to concerts.
