Hi, I’m Talia! I recently graduated from LaGuardia High School and am taking a gap year before attending the University of Chicago in Fall of 2021. I’m most interested in History (I am currently a paid intern at the NY Historical Society), English, and Mathematics. I am also passionate about classical music: I was a vocal major at LaGuardia and continue to study opera. As a Filling the Gap tutor, I’m comfortable working with students of all ages. I have experience tutoring at the Star Learning Center, where I worked with a seventh grader in all school subjects and a second grader on reading and writing. My older student and I focused mainly on essay writing, exam prep, and weekly homework assignments. I also worked as a CIT at a children’s summer camp, engaging with and caring for young campers. I’m so excited to work with Filling the Gap this year and hope that I can help NYC’s students succeed in these hard times!
