I am a Princeton grad currently living in London, England! I have an extensive background working in education, which includes: acting as a full time math teacher in a Ghanaian middle school, private tutoring elementary through high school students in a range of subjects, working for an Educational Consultancy firm where I received training in test prep and learning differences, and acting as a College Counselor for students from different sub-Saharan African countries. I have learned to be adaptable in how I interact with people and have gained versatility in catering to varied individuals. I believe every student deserves to be considered deeply, not just as another number, but as the fully-fledged, multidimensional, complicated person that they truly are. There is no magic bullet â€“ change happens through incremental and sustained effort over time. It involves attention, awareness, and discipline in a myriad of small and challenging ways, day in and day out. I believe that connection and strong interpersonal relationships are what really empowers people. An enthusiast of experiential learning, I love to explore the world and thrive on going outside of my comfort zone.
