Personal tutor since 2008.
I like interacting with middle to high school aged kids because I was one not too long ago, and I feel like I can help them through some of the same struggles and challenges. I want to help them enjoy learning in the same way that I do, and I want them to expect more out of themselves, to dream bigger and believe in themselves.
As an English Major, I've primarily taken English classes. As to the other subjects under my belt, I performed very well in high school in all of them. The only exception is psychology, although I do have experience tutoring in it.
HobbiesI like to draw, sing, laugh, tumblr, cook, read, write, facebook, shop around the internet for discounts. I've recently become interested in fashion, although in a limited way. I'm more the creative type than the logical type. I'm generally sociable with middle to high school aged students, although I wouldn't mind elementary students. I like to help people think critically.
