Prior Experience:
I worked as a Teaching Assistant and Peer Tutor through the Academic Resource Center during college. I enjoyed forming a strong rapport with my students. It was nice to be able to work with them on a professional level in class, but it is also important to feel comfortable interacting with each other outside of class.

Why Italy?
The reason I chose this particular experience is because I wanted to break out of my comfort zone. I have never been out of the country before and I want to expose myself to something new. This opportunity gave me the fortunate position of not only breaking out of my comfort zone, but also getting to work, teach, and learn at the same time. In my opinion, this is an opportunity that is too good to pass up!
