Experience

I am a teaching assistant in English and general humanities classes at Michigan State University and am in the process of earning a Master's degree in English. I have a passion for teaching and helping to make literature and other humanities subjects feel more accessible and relevant to students who struggle with those fields. I have Bachelors degrees in both English and Psychology from Michigan State and am very comfortable tutoring in both of these areas. English courses taken: High school -AP Language (A) -AP Literature (A) Undergraduate -Introduction to the Study of English (3.5) -Introduction the Study of Film (3.5) -Literature in English 1789-1900 (3.5) -Contemporary Film & Media Theory (3.0) -Classical Film Media Theory (3.5) -Readings in Jewish Literature (3.5) -Seminar in Gender & Literature (3.5) -Studies in Film Genres The Gangster Film (4.0) -Seminar in Film & Media Theory (4.0) -Historical Approaches to Film (4.0) -Seminar in 20th/21st Century British Literature (4.0) -Studies in Medieval/Early Modern Literature (4.0) -Seminar in Black Cinema (4.0) Graduate: -Introduction to Graduate Studies (4.0) -Seminar in Political Literatures (4.0) -Introduction to Literary Criticism & Theory (4.0) -Seminar in Modernist Literature & Film (4.0) Psychology Courses Taken: Undergraduate: -Introductory Psychology (4.0) -Child and Family Developmental Psychology (4.0) -Cognitive Psychology (3.5) -Personality Psychology (3.5) -Abnormal Psychology (3.5) -Psychology of Women (3.5) -Developmental Psychology (3.5) Undergraduate Courses Taught: -Integrated Arts & Humanities 221C: Representations of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality in the Modern World (grader; discussion facilitator) -Integrated Arts & Humanities 207: Race in US Literature and Film 1776 - Present (recitation leader) For both of the courses above, in addition to grading, facilitating discussion, and leading recitation, I offered office hours every week in which I would meet with students one on one to discuss course concepts, potential paper topics, writing strategies, and how to improve writing they've already done. I am extremely patient and am good at responding to students' frustrations. I have over 60 hours of training as a crisis counselor with the Listening Ear and I find that these skills carry over very well to listening and responding to student concerns.

Hobbies

My research in graduate school is focused on gender and social issues in contemporary film, media, and literature. Outside of my reading, writing, and research, I enjoy running, doing yoga, going to farmer's markets, indoor gardening, cooking, baking, and listening to and playing music (I play the cello). Also, I love pets (I have 3 bunnies and a family dog I love to take for walks and runs when I visit home!), so meeting in a home with pets is not only doable but definitely a nice little bonus for me!
