About Austin


Bio

As a University of Virginia graduate with a multi-cultural background, I have grown up with great curiosity and a love of learning. I find great joy in mentoring young people, whether it is through tutoring an array of subjects, or through leadership counseling with the Boy Scouts of America (I earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 2012). My principle interests and areas of skill are Spanish, SAT writing, essay writing, jazz guitar and public speaking.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I served for two years on the Heart of Virginia Council's National Youth Leadership Training Staff through the Boy Scouts of America. While on staff, I taught effective verbal communication skills, small group leadership and teaching E.D.G.E methods, and oversaw team-building scouting activities. In addition to my teaching experience, I frequently engaged in public speaking as President of the National Honor Society in high school (2013-2014), and as Senior Patrol Leader of my scout troop (2012-2013).

In addition to rigorous studies that consistently involved writing 20-page essays, I also read resumes and cover letters daily in my professional life. I pay acute attention to detail, and I am well-acquainted with proper writing and interviewing strategies. Please contact me if you would like help with Resume, portfolio, cover letter, or essay writing!

Spanish

I double-majored in Spanish and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia. I have traveled to numerous Spanish-speaking countries, including a study-abroad term in Valencia, Spain during which I lived with a local family and spoke only Spanish with them and in the academic center. I am an advanced writer in Spanish and a highly proficient speaker.

SAT Writing,

SAT Writing

It is always a challenge, albeit a worthy one, to string together one's ideas and share them with others. The SAT is certainly no exception to that challenge. With practice, I was able to score a 770/800 on the writing portion of the SAT. Having been through the practice and testing process, I understand the desired format of the writing section. I can offer advice on clear and concise communication, diction, organization, and how to study additional vocabulary.
