My education background lies in analytical English literature, with a minor in mathematics. However, upon enrollment at Rollins, I pursued a major in Physics, but after a semester and a half within the field, I learned what I found most joy in was working in teams, analyzing learning systems, and educating others. I found passion in working at the writing and tutoring center, first working as a language and writing tutor as a sophomore, and soon as a student manager for the program, assisting and training new tutors and consultants and co-facilitating workshops on learning styles, proper tutoring technique, and Socratic Method. I became especially intrigued with working with ESL students and multicultural affairs, observing and analyzing how they learned most successfully when confronted with multiple pedagogies. Due to my diverse background in the sciences and arts, I was able to draw from a plethora of techniques to observe, comprehend, analyze, and retune education strategies to the greatest benefit of the students I teach.
