"Hello!

I was a Master's candidate at Teachers College, Columbia University and I have a multidisciplinary degree from Case-Western Reserve University. During my years at Case-Western Reserve, I was a paid tutor in the Resident Tutor Program, a federal program which provided group and individual tutoring to public school students. It was a joy to watch those children progress from struggling and, sometimes, apathetic students, to students who became not only eager to come to class, but also made significant progress in learning how to learn.

I am proud to say that this young lady graduated cum laude from one of the top schools in the country, went on to post-graduate school where she also graduated with distinction and is now one" less...
