More About Me
I tutor because I’ve had tutors who have completely changed how I think about my education in the past, more than the teachers I’ve had. I want to be that tutor for someone else, maybe change their mind about what education can be. I also want to tutor because I hope to one day be a teacher or a professor, and I want to have a strong base from which to confidently do that.
I would personally consider myself at this moment an actual archaeologist, not just a student of the subject. A large portion of my time goes to reading, research, and outreach of archaeology and history. It is my passion, and I want to share my love of history and the ways we can study it with people younger than myself so that maybe they can love it too. As a result I’m constantly educating myself and changing the way I conceive of things, and I can bring this active research to students in a way that a teacher or professor cannot.
I am deeply immersed in the practice of my subjects, not just the study of them. I have recent, hands on experience with studying history that very few people can claim. All of this means I live a lifestyle which I can fit my tutoring into, and I won’t just see it as a side job or extra money; it’s something I want to do because it fits with who I am and enacts the changes I want to see in the world.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
In high school I was a Boy Scout with Troop 2010 Stony Point, reaching Life Rank. I volunteered well over 40 hours a year for them. My Catholic High School also introduced me to volunteer service, and I served over 80 hours an academic year while there.
