EducationI graduated from James Madison University with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Political Science. I am currently attending Law School at Charlotte School of Law.
ExperienceI have experience tutoring K-12. Several children I've worked with had special needs including autism and ADHD. I have not tutored in music before, but I do have extensive knowledge of music. I've played the flute for 15 years and the saxophone for 8, on both I've performed professionally.
In regards to AP classes, in high school I personally took and passed AP Psychology, AP English Literature, AP English Language, AP Government, AP Statistics, and AP U.S. History. I understand the struggle they can be at times, but also how to study and prepare effectively. All of the courses have since been reinforced with classes during undergrad.
I have several years worth of experience tutoring and thoroughly love it. Watching kids gain skills they didn't previously have, or get excited over learning something new is thrilling and heartwarming. I enjoy watching children meet and exceed their own goals. For high school level kids, I also teach them a lot of study and note-taking techniques that make the learning process easier while I'm not with them. I love seeing them get excited later when they realize that they absorb a lot more during class and the studying process is suddenly less overwhelming.
All of the children I've worked with have had dramatic improvements in their skills. For example, one girl with ADHD was a grade level behind in math and reading. Over the course of a month and a half she was not only caught up in both subjects, but slightly ahead in math.
HobbiesI really enjoy traveling and seeing the world. My family lives in Europe, so I use the time I have at home to travel with them and experience new cultures. Our most recent trips included Dubai, UAE, and Rome, Italy. Last summer, my family changed it up a little and we did a driving road-trip across the United states and back. We started in D.C. and drove the perimeter of the United States.
Otherwise, I'm pretty nerdy, but in a good way, I think. I watch TV shows like The Big Bang Theory, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder and love movies like Star Trek and Star Wars. (I worked at a Star Wars convention once and it was awesome.) I also do some mild online gaming in League of Legends. I also play the flute every chance I get.
