Tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever experienced for a number of reasons. Getting to know students' strengths and weakness on an in-depth basis, and being able to plan according to that individual's needs, interests, and learning styles, is a pleasure that is difficult to experience in other teaching situations. Tutoring an individual also allows more opportunity for experiential learning; getting out and "seeing" history is more possible with one student as opposed to a whole classroom. Finally, constant monitoring of students' attainment of goals provides immediate feedback on my teaching and how to improve it. I have tutored in one-on-one and small group contexts for three years, and hope to continue to do so for a long time for all the above reasons. I love getting to know students on a personal level, learning as much from them as they learn from me.

My passions include teaching English as a Second Language and history. Doing the equivalent of a master's of arts in history through graduate-level coursework in history culminating in masters' comprehensive history exams has given me extensive content knowledge, as well as high vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing skills. My love for history, and especially Chicago history, was created in this program and is an area of continued interest for me. Last summer, I was awarded a fellowship by the National Institute for the Humanities in Chicago's Gilded Age and Progressive Era, an experience I treasure and have used in the classroom. Above all, I love history because to me, it's our present and our future. As William Faulkner once said, "The past is never dead; it's not even past."
