I have been tutoring students k-8 for over 5 years. Throughout college, I worked as a consultant in our campus writing center. I am have my TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) certification. I interned at an education center, where I spent about 10 hours a week working directly with students. Teaching and learning are passions I continue to cultivate in any way I can. I hope to provide as much educational support to the Chicago student population as possible.
