Hello! I have an extensive background in English literature and all aspects of writing; I am available for tutoring, mentoring, and workshopping. I have expierence in political science, history, and social studies, and I can help with homework questions. I have a relaxed style that puts students at ease and I encourage questions! I am doing all sessions virtually.
I have been a tutor and peer mentor throughout my time in high school. I was also a nationally ranked Speech and Debate competitor with exceptional grades and GPA. I graduated with honors. I acted as a coach to my speech and debate team and still coach them once in a while along with judging at tournaments. Furthermore, I was involved extensively in the theater department and in fact transcribed a book into a play that was put on by my high school. At my time at Northeastern I have interned for barbershop and was in charge of designing and writing content for their lifestyle blog. The company was called Mobile Cuts and I worked closely with the owner. In addition, this past semester I was working at Brigham and Women's Hospital in the dermatology department as a medical scribe. In the coming spring semester I will be focusing on pursuing my interest in film and will hopefully be an intern at Film Posse, one of the main production companies in Boston for historical documentaries.
I am patient, detail oriented, and organized. I can certainly give references from my past experience. In terms of travel, I am currently living in Roxbury on Columbus Ave which is on the Northeastern campus. I can travel by public transportation or do online sessions. I am flexible with my schedule and will put all my effort into improving the knowledge and skills of anyone I am tutoring.
While I have had a lot of success in school I certainly have struggled with procrastination, time management, and motivation when it comes to completing my school work. However, I had people around me that were able to encourage me and I was able to find the drive to pursue the best future possible for myself. I have always been determined to share the lessons I have learned with anyone who can benefit from them because while you can't live a child's life for them you can give them the right tools to be as successful as possible and be the best version of themselves.
I hope I can be the right fit for you.

Through my studies (high school, jobs, and undergrad) i've learned everything from critical public speaking and acting skills, to the mastery of math, science, and english. I speak the slightest amount of Spanish, but am learning more every day. I used to work in San Francisco's Exploratorium Museum where I concreted my understanding of other's learning styles and how to properly commnicate information to my student while doing demonstrations like dissecting cow eyes, exploring the inner ear, compost, lasers, and more! I then worked at an intensive summer camp, and gained more exposure to kids. Through the years I have been informally tutoring my many family and friends. I understand that school is hard, but I love to inspire my students with my passion, energy, knowledge, critical thinking, and communication skills. I have also been a proffessionally trained singer since the age of 6 (I am now 19), first in opera, then in musical theatre, and now in soul, pop, and rnb. Finally, I attended a specialized arts high school and graduated with a concentration in theatre-- we did everything from playwriting to shakespeare, modern dance, voice training, and monologues/scene work. I hope to speak with you soon about whatever you or someone close to you may need help with!
