About Me

I am a graduating masters student completing the Human Geography and Urban Studies program at the London School of Economics. As a published writer I have a background in journalism, academic, investigative, and creative writing. With an academic background in human geography as well as anthropology I am well equipped to support students in english, geography and history. I also have an undergraduate degree in French Studies and spent a semester interning at the non-profit organization SOS Racisme in Paris, France.

One on one tutoring and teacher attention has been an essential component of my academic journey. My own struggles have inspired my approach to tutoring as I use a scaffolding approach to distill larger concepts into more manageable pieces. I am particularly influenced by my high school's pedagogy to support students to "learn how to think"; to support students in finding their own unique ways of approaching a subject and to foster critical thinking skills.

Education

I attended the London School of Economics, Msc Human Geography and Urban studies program from 2018-2019, and will officially graduate this fall. Before that I attended Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT USA where I earned an honors degree in Anthropology & French Studies (GPA: 3.54).

Experience / Qualifications

-published writer
-math tutor for year 2 students
-substitute teacher Pre-K
-after school teacher kindergarten
-peer mentor for undergraduate students studying social sciences
This class is designed for students from kindergarten through year 5 who find the fundamentals of math difficult to understand. Around year two, students begin to make the jump from learning to count to actually making numbers. This course will help students navigate this jump as we will understand how numbers are composed and how they grow. We will identify patterns, breaking numbers apart and reassembling them in new configurations. This course is designed to slow down the learning process and use play to understand the inner-workings of math. Conceptual math moves away from memorization and instead engages the ideas behind addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division so that the student can forge and deeper and longer lasting connection to arithmetic.

Identity shift from shy introvert to outgoing extrovert
If your shy and awkward in social situations and are fed up with seeing other people having all the fun while you quietly watch from the sidelines. Then get in touch now. I'm a Personal Development Freak. When I left school I was a complete introvert with absolutely no social skills. I was small, weak, slow, shy, introverted, and I realised quite quickly that I needed to work twice as hard as everybody else to be as good as everybody else. so I worked bloody hard and put myself in the most uncomfortable situations to get the maximum benefit. I'm now a extrovert who has worked in many countries as an IT Consultant earning a very good living. I'm also a standup comedian and world traveler ( been around the world twice, I love travelling and meeting new people ) I can make friends with strangers very quickly. I'm always learning and developing where ever I go. I'm also an author published 1 book on amazon. I've done the Millionaire Mind Intensive and the Tony Robbins UPW.

Private lessons in History-Geo, SES and English for the Baccalaureate ES
Student at the London School of Economics (LSE) in History, I earned my Baccalaureate ES honors in 2016. I have always loved exchanging and transmitting what I learned. My mother is a teacher of German, I am immersed in the world of education since always. I started giving private lessons when I was in high school, and I continue today. I help academically and psychologically ES students in History-Geography, SES and English. I explain the course in detail (if necessary), and we work on the methodology for each event, the organization and the planning of the work to be done. For example, I started working with two students in high difficulty in April (overall average around 7-8 out of 20), and they just got their baccalaureate, including one with honors. I also worked with another student the year before, who earned the distinction Very Good (with 19/20 in SES).
