Work Experience

Work Experience
City Year Chicago, Student Success Coach
2019 - 2020
As a Student Success Coach, I am responsible for tutoring and mentoring 7th and 8th graders in their English classroom. I assist in the whole classroom, but primarily work with students 1-on-1 and in small groups. I design small group lessons and also track student progress in order to assess their needs and plan which English Language skills need the most development.
Wellesley College Writing Department, Writing Tutor
2016 - 2019
As a Writing Tutor I underwent extensive training and worked for three years with students in every department. As tutors we were trained to provide assistance with all types of writing assignments, and in all stages of the writing process. I helped with everything from analyzing a prompt and brainstorming to putting the final touches on an assignment. As we worked with students in every subject imaginable, I have assisted with everything from lab reports to senior thesis papers. Tutoring was one-on-one and sessions lasted from 30-60 minutes.
Summerbridge Hong Kong, English Department Head/Teacher
2018 - 2018
Summerbridge Hong Kong is a non-profit English immersion summer program for Hong Kong students ages 13-15. As Department Head I mentored other Literature/Social Studies teachers and managed department resources, while also designing and teaching my own course on Children's Literature. The course developed students' reading comprehension, vocabulary, and creative writing skills.
