Ball State University (Political Science)
Throughout my life, I have experienced many fun, challenging, positive/negative, and varying experiences. These life events had enabled me to grow into a very positive and outgoing individual. Whether it was elementary, middle, or high school, I always loved being within a classroom setting. I thoroughly enjoy having the chance to learn about new subjects and how they can positively affect other's lives as well as my own. During my time at Ball State University, I was lucky enough to take various education classes which helped foster my love for helping others develop knowledge in varying aspects of life. I also had the chance during my freshman year to be apart of the A.O.K after-school program at Northside Middle School. This awesome experience allowed me to actively engage with middle-school aged students while enabling their mental and emotional growth.

I believe that a student should leave their tutoring sessions with the feelings of respect, positivity, and excitement to grow as a person.
