EducationI have just finished the first half of my junior year at James Madison University. I am majoring in WRTC, Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communications. I have maintained a 3.76 GPA and have made the Dean's List every semester.
ExperienceAlthough I am not an education major, I love teaching and coaching people one-on-one. There is a sense of fulfillment, from teacher and student, that comes with tutoring and attaining specific goals. I want to impact student's lives in a positive and productive way, and make education an enjoyable aspect of their lives. I have always loved learning, and if I can pass that passion onto one other student, my job would feel complete.
Different styles of teaching connect with different students, and I feel, with my experience and enthusiasm, I can make an impact on student's lives. Not only do I love to teach, I am always available to talk and listen to any problems that students may have. Parents should be the first line of advice, but as someone closer to their age, I know I can give them helpful feedback, or just lend a non-judgmental ear.
I have coached 2nd-8th grade girls field hockey throughout high school, and tutored middle school students in my Junior and Senior year of high school.
HobbiesI enjoy many things in life. Family is very important to me, whether it be by blood or years of friendship. I just started as a DJ on our local radio station, and love music and attend many local shows. I enjoy biking, reading, drawing, and being outside. I've been an athlete my entire life, and continue to play pick-up games in college. I love watching any sports, whether they be live or on TV. I love animals, and currently own a chinchilla (and will hopefully soon own a dog). I have traveled throughout the country and a bit overseas, and plan to continue these travels after college.
