I graduated from Ithaca College in 2014 with a B.A. in history and a minor in the honors department. At college I focused mainly on early colonial American history, but also studied the history of medicine, the Russian Revolution, the History of the Chinese Communist Party, and other areas. In addition, I received my CELTA certificate in 2017 from Teaching House.

I have over two years experience teaching ESL students and over three years teaching experience. From February 2015 until May 2017, I taught at J Prep, a growing and innovative school in Tokyo, founded by Jun Saito, a former Yale political science professor. At J Prep I was the head teacher for lower levels, responsible for developing curriculum, reviewing and administering tests, and explaining materials to other teachers. I also taught more than ten hours a week in addition to my responsibilities as head teacher.

Before I went to college I also spent a year working in a school as part of an Americorps program called City Year. At City Year I worked as a teaching assistant and mentor to improve school life in a lower income school. Additionally, I helped run an after school program and organize community service days.

Lastly, I have over 4 years experience as a camp counselor and tennis instructor.
