EducationBA Public Communication at American University (3.97 GPA), MA Teaching English as a Foreign Language at Hamline University (4.00 GPA), Minors in Italian, Literature, and Cinema. I have presented educational research at numerous national conferences (Schools That Can, National Summer Learning Association, etc.). I won the Excellence in Summer Learning Award for best summer learning program as Executive Director of Summerbridge Pittsburgh in 2007. I have also won national Point of Light Foundation award as well as the Pittsburgh Pirates African American Heritage and Community Champion awards.
ExperienceI have more than 10 years of classroom teaching and individual tutoring. I have taught Preschool, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and university students (BA, MA, and Ph.D) both in the USA and abroad. I have extensive experience working with children and university students. I have served as an editor of multiple dissertations and assisted many students in high school/university paper writing and editing. I enjoy teaching and empowering students to reach their potential. I also specialize in teaching conversational English and working with international students. I also lived in Italy for four years and am happy to teach/engage in Italian conversation.
HobbiesI am an avid reader and traveler, so I have a wide variety of interests and experiences that make me a good fit for most students. I have spent extensive time in Asia, Europe, South America and all over the USA. I enjoy trekking and mountain climbing. I have also sailed across the Atlantic as part of a crew on a tall ship. I love to learn and engage others in the joy of learning.
** PLEASE NOTE - I will be traveling Sept/Oct and will not be available for tutoring. I can resume tutoring on Nov 1st. Thanks for being flexible!
