Hello and Welcome!
I am a student at Northeastern University currently pursuing a Bachelors in International Affairs and Economics
with minors in Political Science
, and History
. I have always had a love for learning and helping others to learn. I have worked as a tutor while in High School assisting fellow students at my school ranging from the Elementary to the High School and many in between.
I have taken five of the Advanced Placement exams (US History
, World History
, US Government and Politics, English
Composition and English Literature
) and scored the highest marks on each. In addition, being a college student I have taken and received A's in courses in the topics previously mentioned.
I am also a published author in the Northeastern University Political Review, having written articles relating to the Electoral College and forecasting the 2016 presidential election.
I have three goals when tutoring a student.
My first goal is to connect with my students on a personal level and see it from their perspective. While I am not a Harvard Phd student or an ex-Teacher, I have plenty of experience in teaching others material in a way that they specifically understand it. Many students learn differently then others and I often present the same material, but just from a new, fresh, point of view.
My second goal is to make learning fun. If the student is frustrated, that is okay, that is perfectly normal. But to be bored by the material and to be disinterested cannot help a student's understanding of it. I know that if a student cares about what they are learning and asks questions, that naturally increases their understanding of what we are trying to learn.
My third goal is a promise I make to myself each time I begin tutoring a new student, and that is to always be there for them. I openly encourage my students to e-mail me, or even to shoot me a text message with any questions, anytime. In fact, that is what I call this policy, "Any Question, Anytime." What I'm promising here is that I will do all I can to ensure my students success, as that's what I'm here for.
A little about myself personally, I enjoy reading
(books of all kinds!) and watching movies and following politics and current events.I grew up in Vermont next to the mountains, and as such I have a passion for skiing as well.
I look forward to working with my students, and as always, feel free to contact me, "Any Question, Anytime".
