Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Helena and I am an incoming Senior,who is majoring in Political Science and minoring in Theatre, and also in Religious and Theological Studies at Merrimack College. My three areas of expertise are in writing, voice coaching, and all aspects regarding Political Science such as United States and European History and Government and Politics. I am a personable tutor and enjoy teaching. I have tutored as a student in High School and have recently started to actually get paid to tutor at Merrimack College's Writing Center. Before coming to Merrimack, I volunteered to tutor; hence, it is clear that tutoring is something that I truly am passionate about. In regards to voice coaching, I have studied voice all throughout High School and College and it is something that I have a connection to. I am primarily classically trained, but have recently received musical theatre/Speech Level Singing training. Although I have not graduated, I believe that this does not hinder me. I have an extreme passion for teaching and I have the necessary education to administer guidance in each of my areas of study.
