As a longstanding student of the College of Education at Seton Hall University, I have had the opportunity to complete both my Masters and Ph.D. programs and have also worked in the Educational Studies department as a Graduate Assistant. Having most recently been assigned to work in the Office of Field Placement, I have been part of an environment that puts the science of teaching at the forefront. The responsibility of handling the placement of interns and student teachers into the local schools and my own experiences as a substitute teacher allows me to view the complete spectrum of instruction from K-16. My experience as a teacher spans across a number of years and different settings. My formal training was in Secondary Education, with a concentration in History. My original plan was to play baseball for SHU. Hindered in this aspiration by an injury to my wrist, I focused on my academic potential rather than athletics and instead served as a manager for the SHU baseball team, aiding in both athletic and academic support. I have used this adversity to instill the lesson to students of varying ages that our greatest potential will be met when our greatest trials are overcome. My current role in the College of Education expands my ability to working with students who are studying for a degree in Elementary or Secondary Education, preparing them adequately for classroom management and successfully completing the Praxis II Exam. Additionally, my student teaching experience at West Orange High School in West Orange, NJ gifted me with the opportunity to work in a culturally diverse setting teaching US History II, Honors US II, and AP US History. My goal has not been to pass along rudimentary facts but to give my students practical use of history in everyday life. My experience in education and the opportunity I've had to watch the complete cycle of education from children just starting to foster their love of learning through their experiences in higher education as adults is my greatest asset as a potential tutor.
