ExperienceI would be a great tutor for any of the following: all periods of History,especially medieval European, all levels of French, including Old French, English Literature or Composition/Writing, and Beginning level Latin- specifically Post- Classical Latin. I am also quite knowledgable in the areas of Womens' Studies, Religious Studies and Italian. Also, if you need to hone your organizational or research skills, I am your girl!
I want to be a tutor because I LOVE to teach. My enthusiasm, empathy and efficiency make me great at communicating what really matters to students.I am also non-judgemental and patient, which comes in handy when someone is really struggling with a concept. Hard work and perserverance are what matters to me most, both in my own work and that of those I teach.
I have taught the following courses at the Catholic University of America, in addition to taking a Graduate level Teaching Methods course:
History 387: Junior Seminar for History Majors- Fall 2009, Fall 2010.
Solo Teacher both years in small discussion-oriented class. Designed my own syllabus, Fall ’09.
History 235: Medieval Civilization - Fall 2008. (Head T.A.)
Honors Humanities 102: From Charlemagne to Chaucer - Spring 2008.
History 102: World Civilizations from 1700- Spring 2007, Spring 2008.
History 101: World Civilizations to 1700- Fall 2007, Fall 2008.
I also served as an informational resource for students at the Boston University Washington Program in D.C. (primarily giving personalized academic advice and guidance on paper writing)while I was Finance Assistant there, August 2009 until March 2011.
American History- 5
I was given the John Tracy Ellis Dissertation Award by the American Catholic Historical Association in 2011 for writing a concise and compelling proposal about my PhD thesis project which is now in progress.
I was given the National Scholar Award by the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, 1999 for overcoming adversity (in my case, clinical depression) with a positive attitude and a dedication to success.
HobbiesI am a great lover of theatre and am a graduate of the Studio Theatre acting Conservatory in Washington D.C. I also have had numerous jobs in the arts and customer service. Thus, a sense of fun, a deep appreciation for culture, and an interest in making
genuine and diverse human connections informs all of my work. I also have been writing poetry since I was eight years old, so I have a true knack for working with words.
