Bio

I am a 25 year old post-baccalaureate student in San Diego. I am originally from Connecticut and was fortunate enough to have attended some of the best public schools in the country (top 10 in CT and top 500 in the country). For my undergraduate degree, I went to Bates College, a top liberal arts college in Maine, rated in the top 25 in the country, similar to Amherst, Pomona, or Occidental. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree, although my major is in Rhetoric, for which I...

I am a 25 year old post-baccalaureate student in San Diego. I am originally from Connecticut and was fortunate enough to have attended some of the best public schools in the country (top 10 in CT and top 500 in the country). For my undergraduate degree, I went to Bates College, a top liberal arts college in Maine, rated in the top 25 in the country, similar to Amherst, Pomona, or Occidental. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree, although my major is in Rhetoric, for which I wrote and defended an honors thesis before a committee of professors.

I am equally interested in the sciences and the humanities. My educational background reflects this; while my main attention was to the humanities, as my major was in Rhetoric, I also took many science courses and am familiar with the material for many required pre-medical courses. I am experienced in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. In college, I worked as a Chemistry Teacher's Assistant, which involved tutoring students and grading their work. I am currently studying Computer Science (C++ and Java), so that I may pursue a job in the tech industry as a software engineer.

As for my major, rhetoric, I believe that it is the true heart of all the liberal arts, and by studying rhetoric, my attention was necessarily drawn to philosophy, literature, politics, and history. With such an academic history, I have great experience writing academic papers, and I have a thorough knowledge of grammar, revision, and editing. I am confident that I am able to help anyone clarify their thinking, their prose, and ensure that their writing is powerful, persuasive, and earns top marks.

I have always excelled in mathematics. I was placed on an accelerated math track early, taking Algebra 1 in 7th grade. By the end of high school I was taking college level math courses in Multivariable Calculus. Upon entering college, I even considered a math major. Now, as I study Computer Science, math is once more on the forefront of my mind, as it has forced me to revisit many of the mathematical concepts that I learned about in high school.

I have always had a deep passion for learning, knowledge, and education. For me, education is something that never stopped after finish school; it has only become more important for me to learn new things. For example, after finishing college and moving to San Diego, I enrolled myself in a local Spanish school for adults, and now, three years later, I can speak with anyone in Spanish about most subjects with confidence that we will understand each other.

For a long time, I had planned to enter academia and become a scholar, but things in life change, and that is no longer my intention. But my love of teaching and learning has never subsided and, for me, tutoring will be a way to share it with others. With a strong education one can pursue what they will of life. Let me help you with this pursuit. Please contact me to schedule a lesson. I am eager to meet you!
