Hello! My name is Miranda, and I graduated with a degree in Politics and minor in Quantitative and Analytical Political Science. At Princeton, I worked as a statistics tutor, and I’ve taught English as a second language to students of all ages – from elementary schoolers in Senegal to adult learners in Trenton. Since graduating, I’ve been living in Jackson, Mississippi, where I worked in advocacy and litigation support at the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am perpetually learning and teaching, and I love sharing the joy of understanding a new concept with learners while helping them build up their confidence. I’m excited to help students with test preparation and course tutoring, especially in math and history.
