I am a recent graduate from Rice University in the United States where I earned an Honors BA in History, specialising in European Intellectual Thought. In late August, I will be going on to earn my JD at New York University School of Law. Since I enjoy both teaching and keeping busy, I'm happy to do tutoring in the meantime.
I took up to level 2 NCEA (with Excellence), attained Scholarship in English, and level 3 NCEA in performance music, along with taking two full years of the International Baccalaureate (IB).
I have Bachelor of Arts in History cum laude, with Honors.
I have tutored in English and Music in the past, for around three years before I left the country for my Bachelors. I also spent three months intensively tutoring a student for her SAT exams, which, upon her taking them, had a 50% improvement from her previous score!
During my undergraduate years, I taught fellow students Model United Nations procedures as well as British Parliamentary debating. ,
I'm a 22-year-old student interested in international law, legal theory and European history, all of which I hope to further explore in my studies.
During my undergraduate years, my primary extracurricular activity was public speaking; I attended debating tournaments both in Europe and throughout the United States, placing in 2017 among the top 40 speakers in the country for Extemporaneous and Persuasive speaking. I love to talk and to engage with others - which is probably also why I love to teach! I consider it both a challenge and a privilege to be able to truly draw a student into a subject. To superficially memorise content for an essay or exam is one thing; to truly engage with a subject is another. While I certainly will be looking to maintain a student's marks, it's that latter engagement that I most care about.
In my downtime, I like reading, spending time catching up with friends, and going for a run around the Epsom area.
