EducationI'm a recent graduate from the University of Pittsburgh with my B.S. in Geology. I have an absolute passion for earth science and the natural world which surrounds us. I plan on returning to graduate school for Engineering Geology at the University of Canterbury, NZ in February of 2014. I also completed a minor in French language and literature, and since my grandmother immigrated from southern France, she insisted I learn French as a child.
ExperienceI have been a TA for geology lab, as well as a French writing tutor within the University of Pittsburgh's French & Italian department. I love to mentor because it enables me to share my enthusiasm for the subjects which I'm truly passionate about. Often, I find that students have a preconceived notion that they do not have the capability to complete the task ahead of them. But with encouragement and practice they succeed, and it is so enjoyable to watch them gain confidence in subjects which formerly terrified them.
I have been on both sides of the spectrum, as I needed a tutor in my Calculus 2 class, and though fear was inhibiting my performance, with a bit of help I was able to succeed, and it became a source of confidence for me.
