"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...

"In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable. In my free time I enjoy running outdoors, scrapbooking, spending time with family and friends, reading, and volunteering. ."
