Private tutor in Denver, CO
I graduated from Wake Forest University in North Carolina with a 4.8 GPA (magna cum laude) in May 2015 with a BA in Religious Studies and French. My senior year I was inducted to Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, and Theta Alpha Kappa Religious Studies Honor Society. I received the highest award for religious studies majors. I have a strong background in essay writing for literature courses, as well as general essay writing that would be applicable to the SAT, because I started my undergraduate career as an English major before switching to Religion and French.
I have experience working as a tutor through two separate offices at Wake Forest University: The Learning Assistance Center and the Student Athletic Center. For the Learning Assistance Center I completed a tutor training that instructed me how to gear tutoring techniques to a students specific learning style, and I learned different study habits and practices that are best for different types of learners. I tutored students in Introductory French for two years with the Learning Assistance Center. I tutored student athletes in religious studies courses, specifically world religions and Christianity in America, for one year with the Student Athletic Center. I developed study habits and skills with student athletes, and I worked with them on tips for taking exams. I am currently living in New York City (moving to Denver at the beginning of January), where I work as a Test Proctor through Columbia University's Disability Services Office. As a Proctor I administer, monitor, and scan/deliver exams for Columbia undergraduate students with mental or physical disabilities. I am also responsible for addressing any issues that arise during an exam (i.e. testing anxiety attack, exam question), and I serve as the liaison between students and the case workers in the Disability Services office. SAT: 13,500 ACT: 29 I want to become a tutor because I have enjoyed the role in the past and I want to continue doing something I enjoy. I am generally attracted to service-oriented careers and because one of my potential career paths is working as a counselor/therapist in middle schools/high schools.

I love nature and being outdoors, I LOVE dogs and all animals. I play guitar and I get along great with children. I have direct experience working with children as a summer camp counselor for girls age 6-13, and I work well with high school students because I have served in various mentor roles such as Resident Adviser and Student Adviser. I am responsible and punctual. I am easygoing yet very organized. I plan to pursue a MA in non-profit management or counseling. I was highly involved in extracurriculars as an undergraduate student so I am well accustomed to working on a flexible schedule. I have a reliable car so transportation to a tutoring session would not be of issue. I maintain a high level of professionalism but I know how to be approachable. I have training in inter-cultural competency and navigating diversity, and I am committed to fostering an inclusive environment wherever I go.
