Greetings students and parents!
I firmly believe that learning needs to be an active and individualized process between a student and a teacher. In a classroom with several students, this can be difficult to achieve. Therefore, one-on-one tutoring is an excellent way for students to identify the best way for them to learn subjects that they struggle with and to build study techniques that work the best for them. I am eager to assist you in this process!
I have been either a student or a teacher, and sometimes both, for my entire life and over the years, I have identified many techniques for learning and teaching to various types of learners. I have a Master's Degree in Anthropology from North Carolina State University and a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology, with minors in Biology and Public Health, from Boston University. During my graduate program, I took a number of seminars on teaching, including one on how to build a curriculum. I have taught college courses in biological anthropology as an adjunct professor at North Carolina State University and William Peace University for the past year since graduating from my Master's program in 2013. In addition, I have experience working with academically gifted high school students as an instructor of Forensic Anthropology for the Duke Talent Identification Program this past summer. In this position, I gained experience in assessing and addressing the individual needs of students whose talents and challenges vary significantly. I also have 3 years of experience as a member of the interpretive and education team at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA, where I taught groups of all ages about the history of the museum artifacts. With my background and experience, I am available to tutor in subjects ranging from social sciences, biological sciences, public speaking skills, writing skills, and organizational and study skills. I consider all of these areas my strengths and I am eager to pass on the years of practice that I have had to this generation of young students, particularly study skills. As a student, professors often suggested my methods of studying and the paper-writing process to other students, and even used them themselves once!
I was born and raised in Massachusetts. I received an excellent education here and I want to do what I can to pay it forward. Ideally, I'd like to work with current students in Massachusetts and help them with their individual successes. If my strengths match well with what you need, I would love to hear from you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from Boston University (2011) and a Master's Degree in Anthropology from North Carolina State University (2013). I have also taught anthropology courses as an instructor of a summer program for gifted high school students and an adjunct professor at North Carolina State University and William Peace University.
As a student of the Four Field Approach of Anthropology, I have also taken four courses in archaeology. My Master's program specialized in forensic anthropology and bioarchaeology.
I took a comprehensive course in public speaking as an undergraduate at Boston University. I also have experience with public speaking as a presenter at 3 local and 2 national conferences. My podium presentation at the American Association of Physical Anthropology conference earned me an award.
I graduated from my Master's program with a 3.8 GPA due to the study skills that I built over the many years that I have spent in school. I apply the use of organized notes and note cards and clever pneumonic devices. I served as a tutor in Middle School for a fellow student who sought help with organization and study skills. Also, I have taught note-taking techniques, specifically split-page notes, to academically gifted high school students.
