In addition, I graduated from UCSD with a BA in History and a minor in Anthropological Archaeology. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, 3.825 GPA overall. I have experience in math, writing, history, chemistry, archaeology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and first year Italian and Latin. I can also provide help in research writing, editing, MLA, APA, University of Chicago, argumentative essays, and writing in general. I am also interested in helping with test preparation.
