Education

Simmons College - Bachelors, Philosophy and Psychology , University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - Current Grad Student, Philosophy (PhD)

Experience

I earned my undergraduate degree from Simmons College in philosophy and psychology and my graduate degree from Tufts University in philosophy. I am currently pursuing my PhD at the University of North Carolina. I have worked as a writing assistant and tutor and helped students of all ages improve their writing skills across a wide range of subject areas. I currently tutor students in writing, philosophy, essay editing, poetry, literature, poetry writing, English grammar and syntax, business, psychology, intermediate accounting, contract law, constitutional law, microeconomics, IB philosophy HL and SL, statistics, IB theory of knowledge, social sciences, English, business ethics, clinical psychology, creative writing, ethics, law, philosophical ethics, and introduction to poetry. I also enjoy helping students who are preparing for the analytical writing and verbal portions of the GRE. I am passionate about education and strive to help my students improve their critical thinking skills and their ability to clearly express their ideas. I find that regardless of their major or the subject area with which they are struggling, improving these two skills can be transformative. When students are better able to analyze what a question or essay prompt is requesting and organize their own thoughts around the answer, they begin to excel.
