Bio

As a graduate from the University of Arizona with a BA in Anthropology, I know how stressful it can be as a full time student and that the stress can sometimes make it difficult to study for exams. I have always enjoyed having the opportunity to help other students in need and worked as an English teacher with a local Refugee network in Tucson, AZ teaching English classes as well as with high school students for three consecutive summers as they took an array of different courses through the...

As a graduate from the University of Arizona with a BA in Anthropology, I know how stressful it can be as a full time student and that the stress can sometimes make it difficult to study for exams. I have always enjoyed having the opportunity to help other students in need and worked as an English teacher with a local Refugee network in Tucson, AZ teaching English classes as well as with high school students for three consecutive summers as they took an array of different courses through the university. Anthropology was a passion and coupled with the History and Classics minors, I was able to explore many different topics while keeping my courses closely tied with what I eventually want to do, become a teacher.

As a tutor I find it is most important to be patient and thorough in finding information, as it can sometimes be tricky to do. Students need someone with whom they feel comfortable working, not someone they are afraid of or intimidated by. I try to be as open as I can so that students are not afraid or intimidated. College is already terrifying enough. But I look forward to helping as many students as I can.

ESL/ESOL

I worked as an ESL teacher for a semester during college, working with refugees in the Tucson, Arizona area from Nepal and Bhutan. Some had been in the country for several years and had received no tutoring in English whatsoever, while others had a massive grasp on the language. They were all eager to learn and I truly enjoyed working with them. By the end of the semester I was proud to be able to reveal to the Honors College, through whom I worked, that at least two of the people attending the classes had been able to find employment after only spending a semester with myself and my partner.

History

American History,

American History

American history is something I was raised around. I grew up in Boston, MA where the subject was highly emphasized every other year through school. I also have a minor in history in which I looked at women's history in the U.S. and world wars I and II. I love history and I have a great respect for it.
Anthropology,

Anthropology

I currently hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in this subject from the University of Arizona. I have taken most courses for this subject, from the four core classes in Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Principles of Archaeology, and Linguistic Anthropology to more advanced courses such as those focusing on art and architecture of Rome and the Prehistory of East Asia. Most of these courses also included written portions, which is something I enjoy doing. I find that with some that include vocabulary that flash cards are simplest and highlighting key facts in the texts are also helpful in studying.
