EducationI will be a Senior next year at Pitzer College, a member of the Claremont Colleges. I am a Political Studies major and Philosophy minor.
ExperienceI am currently one of ten writing tutors at my College's writing center. This position requires that I work 10-12 hours per week helping students at a peer to peer level with their writing assignments, brain-storming and overall organizational skills. This year alone, I have helped students raise their grades exponentially and even assisted some in receiving acceptance into Teach for America. I attended weekly training meetings and spent each week working with a variety of students and their writing. I have worked with several older students pursuing graduate studies, special needs students, college students and young children.
As a Political Studies major and Philosophy minor at Pitzer College, I have extensive experience with writing, critical thinking and explaining difficult subjects in a more accessible way. I have been employed at my College's Writing Center for over a year now and have been certified online by Norton's Little Seagull program.
In the past, I have also been a private tutor in Sherman Oaks, CA. I worked at home and helped neighborhood kids with their reading, writing and social studies.
I believe that working at a horizontal level is the best way to create a supportive and effective learning environment. As a tutor, I find it highly rewarding to help students achieve their goals and learn how to manage their time while also improving their writing technique. Having the ability to write a strong essay, letter or short story is becoming increasingly more important in the academic world. I am motivated to help young students learn these necessary skills early and hopefully, build a strong foundation in organization and writing for the future.
This summer, I am offering a program targeted at middle school to high school students. It is writing intensive and will teach students how to organize a strong essay and help them to improve in all academic subjects where writing is necessary. Additionally, I am happy to help those students who need assistance with summer school courses.
HobbiesI am very interested in American politics and in the past, have worked for Obama for America helping to campaign for the President. I also love television, reading, debate, spinning and writing.
