I am a graduate student of Social Studies education within a highly competitive teacher preparation program and am passionate about learning and an advocate for youth. Tutoring will not only be an extremely rewarding experience for me, but it will also help me learn as a future education how to best work with my students and fine-tune my pedagogy. From a more personal perspective, I am a childhood cancer survivor who was diagnosed at 17 (Hodgkin's Lymphoma) and understand the struggles of youth balancing life and school studies. I feel that my experience as a cancer survivor has given me life skills that I can apply to many different situations, whether academic or personal.
