Raised by a preschool teacher and a researcher, I was taught the importance of education from a very young age. My experience growing up in Boston, D.C., and Oklahoma put the disparities of the American public education system on display, further reinforcing my belief in the value of quality learning experiences. As a result of my passion for education, I am planning to become a high school social studies teacher through Princeton’s Teacher Preparation Program.
My aim as a tutor/teacher is not only to communicate the material, but also to help the student develop the underlying skills that are necessary for academic success: strong reading and writing, critical thinking, and effective studying. I believe that when a student is equipped with these tools, they are capable of overcoming any academic challenge with which they may be presented.
