I am a Stanford University graduate who is passionate about the value of education. My undergraduate major was Anthropology
, but a I took a wide range of coursework in science
, computer programming
, the humanities, and foreign languages (French
). I graduated at the top of my class as a member of Phi Beta Kappa with a 4.19 GPA. I also was the valedictorian of my high school, Minneapolis South, with a GPA of 4.24. In May 2011, I graduated from Minnesota State Community and Technical College with a diploma in Sustainable Food Production.
I love learning, and I am excited to share my enthusiasm with students. My academic strengths are writing
, critical thinking, math

). I can also tutor students in French. After I graduated from high school, I spent a year in France, attending a French high school and living with a French family. During my junior year of college, I spent another six months in France at the Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris taking university-level courses in French.
I am a published author and have more than five years of experience producing educational materials for children. I also have substantial experience as a tutor and instructor, helping others learn in various capacities for the past 20 years. I served as a Senior Counselor at Concordia Language
Villages' French language camp, Lac du Bois. During my undergraduate years, I tutored underprivileged elementary school children from East Palo Alto in reading
. In high school, I was on the math team and tutored fellow students in math. More recently, I have served as a Teacher's Assistant for M State's online sociology
courses and volunteered as an ESL
teacher with the Minnesota Literacy Council.
Most importantly, I love teaching -- empowering others to hone their academic skills and experience the joy that comes from confidence and knowledge.
