How has the Summit's Tutoring Corps prepared you for a career in education?

Through this experience, I have a plethora of tools I can use to engage, educate and empower my future students, in the classroom setting and beyond.

Why Summit's Tutoring Corps?

This opportunity came in a critical juncture of my life. I wanted to learn, serve and forge deep connections with others. Summit's Tutoring Corps allowed me to do those and more.

What has been the highlight of your year in Summit's Tutoring Corps?

My highlight is the amalgamation of the times that my students have felt accomplished, learned something about themselves and their world, and the tears, laughter, insight and stories I've shared with my colleagues.

How has your work at Summit changed the way you view education?

I've learned to not give up on the American educational system, that it can move forward, and I have a place, no matter how seemingly insignificant I perceive it to be, to contribute towards the goal of equitable, rigorous and empowering education for every student in this country.
