EducationTEFL Certification (2014), Bachelor's degree in Writing from Ohio University (2009), additional TEFL certification course focusing on business English and a second course focusing on young learners.
ExperienceI have tutoring experience with ESL students in both the USA and in Italy, where I worked as tutor for about one year. While in Cleveland, I have been an English tutor at Cuyahoga Community College since 2015. I have my TEFL/TESOL certification and a bachelor's in writing. I'm considering returning to school for a master's in education which would allow me to teach full time, but in the meantime I would still like to get some tutoring in. In my younger days I scored in the top 10% on both the SAT and ACT, and was just slightly above average on the LSAT. My educational interests are mainly English and social studies, and although I'm technically more qualified to do English, I find myself reading historical books and researching US and European history regularly. I'm just into it for some reason.
HobbiesTraveling, of course. Writing, eating sweets, and being active outside - hiking, walking, jogging, etc. I know it sounds like a joke, but I genuinely enjoy learning new things, especially about history. Living in Europe for a year opened my mind to the point that I'm starting to realize just how much I don't know about the world and its people. It's intimidating, but it's important. Learning about people and connecting people is the most powerful thing we have.
