Education

Boston College - BA, Film Studies

Experience

I received my BA in Film Studies with a minor in Economics from Boston College. I have tutored in a wide variety of locations teaching both children and adults in many fields of study. I primarily tutor students in elementary reading and math, and I truly love working with this age group. In my experience, teaching elementary aged students is more about learning how the student thinks and finding ways to present material that gives them the tools they need to excel in the subject. This method is essential for a struggling student which is why I believe individual tutoring is so successful. I work patiently, going through every step of my student's thought process so that I am able to give each one a personalized learning experience.After working for so long with so many children, I have come to believe that all students are capable of academic success. Often, it is the educational system that has failed the child rather than the child who is failing the system. I work diligently to help my students learn in the way that is best for them so they can achieve their academic potential.When I'm not tutoring I enjoy reading, biking, watching documentaries, swimming, hiking, playing card games, watching movies, and exploring New York.
