Rumyana: Social Studies

Social Studies Tutor

Background
I have undergraduate degrees in political science and Russian Language/Area Studies from St. Olaf College, so a strong emphasis on world history, writing skills, and language learning/acquisition. After college, I taught English as a foreign language in Moscow, Russia for a school year and earned a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification. I am familiar with the International Baccalaureate track for high schoolers as well, as I earned the IB diploma when graduating from high school.

I have worked with youth in education settings as a teacher, mentor, and youth specialist, and in topics covering language skills, studying skills, personal and social development, and STEM. I currently facilitate online career pathways programming for adults and am super comfortable navigating both in-person and online learning.

Free Time
I love running for exercise and walking around the lakes in South Minneapolis. I am a super active, outdoorsy person, and in general try to spend my time outside as much as possible. I also love reading, playing piano, and hanging out with my beautiful cat.

Goals
As a tutor, I aim to make learning fun and engaging by thinking outside of the box, while still making forward progress and keeping accountability in mind. I love working with kids/young teens and being a part of establishing learning as a fun endeavor for young learners. Personally, I am hoping to start an M.A. degree in program in Human Rights this year!
