I just finished my junior year in college at Hobart and William Smith, a small liberal arts institution in Geneva, New York, although I spent the spring semester studying abroad in the Netherlands. I was born in Maryland but raised in Delaware, and I went to high school at Garrison Forest in Owings Mills, Maryland. I graduated at the top of my class from high school while taking multiple AP courses, including AP English, Biology, and Calculus. My PSAT score was a 2000, and my SAT score was 2210. Now I'm on the pre-med track, majoring in both Biology and English. I had the highest GPA in my class freshman year, a 4.19. Of course, all of this doesn't mean I'm any good at teaching, but I do know my stuff. My teaching knowledge comes mainly from participating in the America Reads program organized by my college in the fall of my freshman year. There, I learned basic skills for helping children improve their reading and writing skills. I also have many, many younger cousins, so I'm used to spending time with people younger than myself. The picture I've used in my profile is from a trip to Ghana I took with one friend at the end of my senior year of high school. This trip also gave me practical experience with tutoring and working with kids, since I lived in an orphanage for the two weeks I was there. Traveling is one of the many activities I enjoy that don't involve books. I've been to Spain and Mexico as well as 8 years of classroom experience, so I have a pretty good grasp of Spanish. Travel has taught me to be open minded and to appreciate differences in other cultures. I also enjoy playing field hockey, soccer, and horseback riding.
