Private tutor in Durham, United Kingdom
First year English literature student at Durham University (University College, or "Castle"); one completed year of undergraduate education in the United States, graduated from Saint Francis High School (Mountain View, CA) with high honors (maxima cum laude)
SAT Score: 2230 (out of 2400) Passed English Language, English Literature and French Language AP tests As an aspiring English professor, tutoring provides me with the experience I need to develop the essential skills of an educator while also deepening my understanding and passion for teaching. I truly adore working with students in an academic environment and I believe that my desire to educate in the future resonates through my work as a tutor. I have tutored for many private parties within their own homes; also, I worked as a teacher's assistant for a previous English teacher during my senior year of high school. I edited essays and other written assignments, engaged with students in discussion, helped students with their critical research, etc. I take the job very seriously and can promise the same dedication in my work with your own child.

I am an avid creative writer with special interest in poetry and prose, but I have meddled in most major branches of writing. I absolutely love reading, whether it be a novel or a critical text. At my high school, I was a Chief Editor of our annual literary publication. I ride horses competitively when I am home in the United States. I am extremely interested in foreign cultures, primarily French and Native American. I am a music lover, but my appreciation for art also spans to the visual and performing arts. I have a lot of intellectual interests, and I really do believe that people of any academic interest can relate to me; I am the type of person that most feel very comfortable with.
