I tutored throughout high school, both as a member of the Organization of Student Tutors and as a freelance tutor for members of my neighborhood. I have continued tutoring in college for a wide range of subjects and tests. I have worked with many students to help them raise their grades and scores; I recently helped one student to raise her SAT score by around 400 points. I love to tutor because it provides the opportunity to see concrete changes and development that I helped to foster in the student. I love the idea of nourishing someone’s potential and using the skills that I developed through high school to help others.
Outside of tutoring, I enjoy reading and always have, everything ranging from non-fiction accounts of global warming to historical fiction from the time of King Henry VIII. I am very passionate about politics and government policy but never got the opportunity to explore this passion in high school; I am really excited to be pursuing my true interests and dreams in college – I hope one day to work in policymaking as a career. I also have interests in science, particularly in psychology. I worked in a psychology lab the summer before my senior year of high school as part of three year science research program in which I was enrolled.
