Bio

I have an associates degree in Art History. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors in Sociology and in Race, Gender & Sexuality in 2014. In 2017 I graduated with a Masters of Social Work. I concentrated on cultural competency, intersectionality, human trafficking, racial disparities, and the oppressive systems that affect culture and education.

I have an associates degree in Art History. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors in Sociology and in Race, Gender & Sexuality in 2014. In 2017 I graduated with a Masters of Social Work. I concentrated on cultural competency, intersectionality, human trafficking, racial disparities, and the oppressive systems that affect culture and education.

I believe that finding enjoyment in a subject, even if it is particularly challenging makes the biggest difference. I remember being in grade school and struggling tremendously in math. It wasn't until I had a tutor who made it fun enough for me to get through my work that I started understanding and passing math class. I think this is an important aspect of my approach to helping and tutoring.

I have spent 10 years in higher education taking coursework in subjects that required papers and essays over tests. It allowed me to develop a strong ability to write papers and proofread. My vocabulary and grammar skills also dramatically improved and I feel I am qualified to help others in these areas.

I have spent 6 summers working as a paraprofessional with elementary school children with special needs. These ranged from Austism Spectrum Disorder and dyslexia to Prader Willie and severe brain trauma. I spent time with them on-on-one to help improve their skills and abilities by using my knowledge of their disorders to guide my work. I am certified in Applied Behavior Analysis and worked specifically with children with ASD in an after school program. In my time as an intern at a District 20 High School I also worked with teens with various mental, emotional and pyschological disorders which interfered with their academics. I

I have an associates degree in Art History and it is one of my biggest passions. While it seems to be out of my wheelhouse, I believe that art is a reflection of society and culture of the time. This makes art history and its theories fascinating to me and it is why I have continued to study it beyond my degree.
