University of Michigan-Dearborn (Political Science)
University of Toledo (Graduate Coursework)
I am certified to teach social studies and English language arts, and I am currently in the process of completing my Master's degree in middle childhood education. I have a political science degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and I have experience working with students from kindergarten through high school.
As a teacher, it sometimes frustrates me that I am not able to give one-on-one attention to those students that need the extra help. This is why tutoring is something that I enjoy very much. Not only do I streamline my creativity into making learning fun, but I am able to tailor this learning directly to the interests of the student I am working with.
I have a strong background in reading instruction, as I am currently in the process of completing a K-12 reading endorsement. Also, I have a passion for teaching social studies, and I am able to make these subjects appeal to even the most disinterested learners.

I received a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2011, where I earned a 3.89 GPA upon completion. I have taken political science courses at the graduate level in addition to my teaching courses. I have an extensive knowledge of political science, and I have also completed internships in the field.
I have taken religion courses as a part of my studies. I also have experience teaching religion as a part of social studies curriculum at the secondary level. I am certified to teach social studies at the secondary level in Michigan and at the middle grades level in Ohio. I have a very deep understanding of the major world religions as well as those lesser-known religions and their impact on culture.
