Drexel University (Sport Business)
I am passionately committed to helping others unlock their highest potential, especially regarding improving literacy and reading comprehension skills. As a City Year Corps Member this year, I've developed my skills in helping young people discover a love of reading, as well as improve their abilities. The best parts of this year has been seeing my students grow their self-confidence about their academic abilities. As my year of service is concluding, I'm looking for other ways to stay involved with helping young people grow.
I specialize in English, specifically strengthening reading comprehension through active reading strategies, and developing student writing. These skills in English are also readily applicable to a variety of other subjects, most notably history and other social sciences. I've always had a love of the social sciences, although I haven't been able to directly tutor in these areas as much this year.
I'm just getting started with private tutoring, and as such I'm looking for ways to grow with my students. I seek to create lifelong learners by building skills that they can use throughout all subjects at all levels. These transferable skills help students help themselves over time by becoming self-reliant, rather than needing a tutor for their lives.
Currently serving as an AmeriCorps Member with City Year, where I plan and implement English Language Arts interventions for 11 ninth grade students at a CMSD school, focusing on improving fluency and reading comprehension skills. I received over 25 hours of ELA intervention training as well as regular coaching and feedback from my direct supervisor. Created interventions for English, history, and physical science classes as part of service.
I studied Marketing during my undergraduate career at Drexel University, where I received a minor in Marketing, with particular focus on marketing in the nonprofit and sports sectors. I also implemented marketing fundamentals as part of my on campus jobs within Drexel Student Affairs, most notably creating a social medial marketing proposal for the Office of Student Leadership Development & Traditions.

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.
