I know from my own experience as a student that the best way for a student to reach her full potential is to have a teacher who truly believes in her. When I'm not tutoring, you can find me in the theater, with friends, or at home with a good book."

I feel that everyone has their own pace at which they learn and as a tutor it's my responsibility to tailor the subject to each individual student. In my experience, the worst attitude a student can have is to be negative about their abilities, one should never underestimate what they can do!."

"The result was a chorus of engaged, knowledgable singers equipped with the tools for a future as a music lover and maker. I have experience in both Math/Science and the Humanities. At Yale, I studied Philosophy of Science, focusing on the intersection of physics and philosophy (my senior essay explored the knowability of the direction of time, and incorporated findings from wave-physics), and took numerous courses in literature and writing.
