Tutoring Experience

I have a wide range of experiences with tutoring. I worked at the Boys and Girls Club tutoring high school students on their course work, and also worked with younger children in elementary school on weekends. I also worked at Hope House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center for women, most of whom have been recently incarcerated. Professors from Stanford taught classes there and I crafted lesson plans and helped the women with their assignments in subjects including Creative Writing, Philosophy, and Sociology. I also tutored in Cape Town with an online college program for migrants and refugees at Scalabrini Center. I was also a Course Assistant for a class at Stanford under Professor Amy Freed. I've also done some college advising through Stanford for disadvantaged youth.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

Most of my volunteering has involved tutoring. I think education is one of the most important ways to empower people.
