I have worked in a variety of environments, including with students facing the challenge of disabilities in learning or unconventional avenues to education. These have all been successful on both academic and personal levels. I have extensive training and practice in communication, patience, understanding and interpersonal dynamics both through tutoring and my role as Residential Advisor/Mentor at Columbia. My approach will be dynamic and mutual, focused on the learning process and on mutual benefit, learning and growth. I will also be gaining experience as a teacher, and this is always kept in mind. After my Graduation from Columbia I will be studying and working abroad and then applying to Graduate School. At University I am active as an editor at the Columbia Journal of Literary Criticism, an employee in the Department for Comparative Literature and Society, and and an RA in Columbia University Residential Life.
