I grew up with a younger brother and 6 younger cousins, all of whom I babysat and tutored frequently. I have helped with general homework support and tutored specific subjects if a child needed more specialized help, both as part of regular babysitting jobs and as just a tutor. I also worked as a camp counselor for two summers, volunteered as a teaching assistant at a primary school in London, and worked as an assistant teacher in children's acting classes, so I have a wide range of experience working with children.
I have owned a Mac laptop for 5 years and have experience with transitioning from a PC to a Mac. I tutored senior citizens in computer skills on Macs this past year. Application-specific experience includes iMovie editing, iTunes/iPod setup, Microsoft Office for Mac, and Open Office for Mac.
I grew up using various versions of Windows on a PC and continue to use it at work. I am experienced in troubleshooting issues with printers, software installations, and other common issues. Additionally, I tutored senior citizens in computer skills on both PC and Mac.
I am a lifelong voracious reader, and my college major consisted of nothing but reading and writing. My SAT, ACT, and GRE test scores all demonstrate my ability in reading comprehension and all verbal skills, and I enjoy reading on top of it being an academic strength.
Throughout college, I consistently honed my time management and study skills. I became especially skilled at balancing the requirements of long and short term assignments simultaneously, and at tracking long term projects along the way. My major was incredibly writing-intensive, so I am particularly experienced in research papers, but those same skills can easily be applied to things like oral presentations or more creative projects.
I was a Dramatic Literature major in college, which I describe as an English major who reads plays instead of novels, so I have extensive knowledge of theatre history. I have held multiple internships in the Literary offices of theatre companies, which involved reading and evaluating script submissions in order to determine what the theatre should produce. Additionally, I performed in well over a dozen plays and musicals throughout high school and college, so I can coach audition technique as well.
