University of Massachusetts Amherst (English)
I am a student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Honors College, going into my second semester of my freshman year. I am currently majoring in English, though hopefully by next semester I will be in the BDIC program, which enables students to combine concentrations to create their own, unique major, which I would focus on Professional Writing. At UMASS, I am involved in a board planning events for my dorm and occasionally serve at soup kitchen in downtown Amherst.
In high school, I was a member of my school's National Honor Society, through which I helped tutor underclassmen in a variety of subjects. I also tutored elementary school students in the violin, babysat for multiple families and worked at a child care center, so I have plenty of experience working with younger kids. I love to help students further their education and to foster an enjoyment for learning.

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 am currently majoring in English, but I am in the process of designing my own major in Professional Writing. I have taken multiple courses both in college and outside of school in writing, as well as honors and AP classes in high school in English and Literature.
I have played soccer since I was about four years old. I played for my school's junior varsity team from eighth grade through tenth grade, and played varsity in my junior and senior years. I also played for several club soccer teams throughout middle school.
I took private violin lessons for six years, and played in my high school band for four years. I also tutored elementary school violinists when I was in my senior year both in their regularly scheduled lessons and in after school sessions. It was for this work that I won a director's award at the end of my senior year.
