EducationI am a Sophomore political science major with a journalism and mass communications minor at Iowa State University with a GPA of 3.46
ExperienceI achieved a 29 on my SAT in English and a 31 in Reading. I would love to be a tutor because I greatly enjoy helping people. I also struggled in math and science when I in elementary and high school and I had tutors that really helped me, so I would like to give back to the system. I am working to achieve a minor in journalism and mass communications so I'm always enrolled in different writing and communication classes that teach me a great deal.
I am currently employed on campus with the Iowa State Department of Residence as part of their Summer Conference Staff. Out of 200 applicants only 18 were chosen. We work with all the guests from conference that attend Iowa State throughout the summer and live in our residence halls. We must be able to communicate efficiently with our guests and answer hard and confusing questions about schedules, procedures and directions. This job has greatly increased my effective communication skills which is also important when tutoring.
HobbiesI love working with and helping anyone I can with a problem. Working for the department of residence I get to help guests all the time with questions about the university and helping them figure out tough situations they may encounter. I get a huge sense of accomplishment after helping someone.
I enjoy sports and am very active. My favorite sports to play are volleyball and golf, but I'm a huge NFL fan, so football is also a major interest! I am very involved on campus in various organizations and I love every second of it.
