Eileen graduated from the School of Arts and Sciences with a major in Art History and a minor in Classics. In her free time she helps run House Blackrill: Medieval Reenactment Society and whacks people with swords. In the future she plans on attending graduate school for Art History.
As an undergraduate, Eileen first found her passion for tutoring through the Rutgers Learning Centers, where she mentored students one-on-one and individually in remedial math. She explored this passion further by working with the Office of Student Affairs at Rutgers to put together a 10-week accredited Art History seminar for first-year students, for which she developed the curriculum and was the sole instructor. This experience taught her the importance of adapting lessons to the interests and strengths of her pupils.
In her final year of undergraduate studies, Eileen spent a semester abroad in Galway, Ireland. There, she developed a healthy interest in Irish History and an unhealthy interest in fish and chips.
