Experience

Former anthropology department tutor at Wheaton College, Massachusetts Extensive graduate peer editing experience and work in college admissions SAT scores: Critical reading 790 Writing 780 Oxford Master's qualified in: Development Economics (Macro and Micro) Quantitative Statistical Methodologies Qualitative Methodologies (Anthropology, Sociology, Economics) Anthropology Latin American Sociology Oxford's Department of International Development qualified me in a mixed methodology approach to studying international economic development. While my primary training is as an anthropologist, I am also theoretically and practically qualified to a master's level in the fields of development economics, sociology and human geography. I have presented my academic findings on subjects including criminal insecurity, urban studies, and socio-economic development at Oxford University, Cambridge University, and Queens University of Belfast. Since high school, peers have asked me to edit their work and informally tutor them in various subjects. In undergraduate when I began tutoring in a formal capacity, I realized it represented a great way for me to connect with people and learn subject matter better myself. My competence in tutoring and editing was reinforced following the completion of my Master's degree, when peers from Oxford and Cambridge continued to send me work to edit for their publications and academic applications. Having experienced the shared joy of helping someone succeed as well as having been on the receiving end of excellent tutoring, I know what a difference a skillful tutor can make to one's educational life. I bring to the table a passion for academic inquiry and a set of practiced didactic techniques that have been experience-proven to bring about results.

Hobbies

My interest in international economic development led me to co-found a Bhutan-based NGO in 2013, which is currently preparing to launch a new urban agenda in 2018. I've done fieldwork in documentary film in subjects ranging from snake charming in India to garbage dumping in Bhutan. I'm also a long time amateur cellist and an intensive practitioner of insight meditation. As the daughter of two anthropologists, I grew up in the field. I've lived in five countries and traveled to nearly three dozen more. My travels almost always involve a project or research, I'm always looking out for a new way to apply my research skills for a productive venture.
