More About Me
I love kids – I’m the eldest of 3 siblings, and I have a brother who is 11 and a sister who is 8. I have had extensive experience tutoring and teaching. In high school, I was head of K2K, our school’s peer-tutoring club. I also worked for a month at a nearby elementary school, Hunnewell Elementary, as a teaching assistant in my senior year of high school. At Penn now, I’m Outreach Director for the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project. I have also tutored online via the VarsityTutors platform. In these roles, I have taught English, Math, Science, and History. Consequently, I have learned how to engage students and ensure that they absorb as much as the material as possible. My dad is a professor, so I have learned from a young age how rewarding it can be to teach someone difficult material in a way that they can understand.
