"Our minds and bodies need to be involved. When working with children and young adults, it is of the utmost importance that the student knows that their opinion and questions are valued and respected. From a point of mutual respect, I am able to move the subject matter forward. My methodology is to find a way to connect what is being studied to the student's own life, helping each individual to connect with what they are learning in a meaningful way."

"I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun. I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies. I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university. After graduation, I went to Africa for six months."

"I think the key to doing well on standardized tests and writing great essays is having the information to make clear connections between ideas. When I tutor, I require a certain level of memorization, because I think a strong base of knowledge leads to original thinking. But I don't rely on memorization alone - knowing facts is only one part of a holistic education. For example, a good essay depends on insight just as much as knowledge."
