Tutoring Experience

I worked as a summer camp counselor at Camp Foster YMCA for two summers. I taught a variety of subjects such as music, kayaking and rock climbing and worked with campers ages 5-17 in both our day camp and overnight camp. In Spring 2018, I student-taught in a dual-language classroom at PS163 in New York City. Throughout the entirety of my senior year, I was a learning assistant at the NYU University Learning Center. There I tutored writing, critical thinking, research skills, all levels of Spanish and Arabic, and English grammar and structure for non-native speakers. I am comfortable tutoring any subject within humanities through the college level. As a counselor and student teacher, I worked with students and campers with a range of special needs. At my teaching position I often helped students who were struggling with social/emotional needs. I am experienced in both online and in-person tutoring. I am most familiar with Zoom, however I am well-versed in technology and would feel comfortable using any service.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

I spent the past year and a half working as an interpreter and translator at the New Sanctuary Coalition (NSC) in New York. I worked on several cases there, translating documents, interpreting conversations, and supporting these individuals through the asylum-application process. At my student-teaching position, the majority of my students came from lower-income communities. I also did sporadic volunteering throughout New York, such as helping with community gardens and doing meals-on-wheels runs.
