Smart, Hard Working Tutor With Strong Humanities Background
My name is Martina and I am excited to be your new tutor! I grew up in Portsmouth, attended Phillips Exeter Academy and Middlebury College, and I am currently on a deferral year before starting law school in the fall at Columbia University. I majored in political science and as a result I have a strong background in writing, reading, history, and other humanities work. I also minored in French and studied abroad in Bordeaux in college, and as a result would be a great fit for someone looking for extra help with French.
I have always been drawn to teaching, working at various preschools during high school and college, teaching a once-weekly French class for elementary students at Middlebury, and tutoring students at a weekend study hall program in Boston after graduation. I think I am good at striking an ideal balance between helping students along and letting them figure out things on their own, and what I like best about teaching is watching students learn and progress over time!
