About Sydney

A little about me: I have always been that kid who over-achieved in school, because I love school and I love learning (nerd alert!). My favorite pastime is reading, which probably explains why I have two full bookshelves crammed into my apartment and have needed glasses since the age of 12.

My best subjects are English, economics, and math up through elementary calculus (including statistics), but I also am comfortable teaching biology and Spanish.

As for my qualifications, here are some numbers so you can get an idea...
SAT score: 2200
High school graduating GPA: 4.3
AP Calculus AB score: 5
AP Biology score: 5
AP English score: 5

I have gotten straight-A's throughout my high school and college English classes, and my freshman year in college I was as editor at my university's main print newspaper where I wrote and edited articles for the Feature section for the weekly issue.

I know the ins and outs of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. I have used Word for all my assignments, as well as at my job, and I have been using it for over 10 years. I have made many presentations on PowerPoint over the years as well, and am adept at the practical and stylistic functions of the program.

I am an economics major and have a 3.5 GPA in my major classes, which include microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, monetary economics, and public economics. Economics is my passion and I have in-depth knowledge of the subject. I plan to attend graduate school after I graduate to obtain a Master's in Economics.

Ask questions! Gain knowledge! Go forth and learn!
