EducationSyracuse University - Bachelors, English Textual Studies and Journalism
ExperienceI have a degree in English Textual Studies and Magazine Journalism from Syracuse University. While at Syracuse, I tutored with the SU Literacy Corps, working with kids in the local school district. With my guidance, they improved their writing skills, finished difficult homework assignments, and discussed reading comprehension in small groups. This tutoring experience expanded my knowledge from that of just a student to that of a teacher. It made me remember my high school English teacher, whose way of teaching completely changed how I viewed academics. As a tutor, I wanted to inspire students, even in a small way, like my teacher did for me.Today, I volunteer with high school students to help them become better writers, especially in regard to essay structure. I also can help students with standardized test prep in writing and English. Other areas I can provide assistance are English as a Second Language, reading comprehension, literature, and all major areas of communications and literacy.From a personal perspective, I have a passion for books and reading, as well as poetry and creative writing. I coach the high school volleyball team and like riding horses. You may also find me belting out songs as I drive my car.
HobbiesReading, poetry, creative writing, painting, volleyball, horseback riding, photography, running
