"I started tutoring in high school and have tutored elementary through college-aged students, as well as teaching 10th grade English for a year and serving as a teaching assistant at Harvard University and the University of Cape Town.

I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love to travel, and have been to more than 20 countries. I lived in South Africa for two years on a research ...

"My mother, a small-business owner/educator and my father, an electrical engineer instilled the value of education in me at an early age. I learned a lot of my teaching style from them; patience, repetition, organization, and motivation to name a few. I began tutoring my cousins in my youth who struggled with math, science, or english. In college, this continued as I tutored underclassmen in the biological sciences, organic chemistry, algebra, and writing. After graduation, I had a natural inclination to service students in the classroom as a high school biology teacher for two years in HISD." ...
