ExperienceTook AP History, English and Psychology exams in High School; took SAT, SAT II's and GRE exams for graduate school.
I was the student coordinator for an educational outreach program through my geology department in college; we went to local elementary schools with hands-on activities and earth science lessons.
I love to teach because it helps me to understand material better. Explaining it in a way that others can grasp is the true test of how well you yourself understand something. I am very patient and encouraging when it comes to learning as I believe it is the basis for future confidence and success.
HobbiesI've taken dance since I was 4 and have taught it to young children since age 16. I was a dance major in college until I changed to Geology and kept dance as a minor. Dance trains your eye to understand a person by watching their physical actions, sometimes without even having to hear them speak. I currently perform with a small company part-time in New York City and I also take pre-professional classes in the city occasionally. Dance keeps me disciplined but also helps me remain creative.
I also love to cook and bake, my house constantly smells of cookies :)
I've grown up on the ocean my entire life and am so excited to now be studying it for a career. I have been on a number of research cruises and also have a family pleasure boat that we use to go to Block Island, Shelter Island (Long Island), Watch Hill RI and Martha's Vineyard.
