"...As a result, I became well-educated in both classic literature as well as contemporary literary theory focusing on a variety of topics such as gender, media, class and social structure, and an assortment of other theories and topics (all of which I'd love to chat about if given the opportunity). In my downtime, I love exploring and trying new things (mainly food) and I'm an avid animal lover. Here's some additional trivia about me: I was originally born in Texas (Air Force family) Trying new restaurants is one of my favorite activities Favorite movie: The Right Stuff (that Air Force family clearly had an impact on me...) Favorite book(s): Nothing compares to the Harry Potter series, in my humble opinion Favorite animal: My two golden retrievers, Logan and Skylar (though my cats make a decent bid for this vote) Favorite TV show: Mad Men (nope, my company doesn't make it - but I'm genuinely hooked on this series) I warmly encourage you to contact me! I look forward to meeting you..."

"Teaching is about passion, not only a passion for the subject but for the desire to impart knowledge on your students that will stick with them for a lifetime and prepare them to be part of a new and evolving future. In those terms, teaching is a process of engaging students and empowering them to pursue their own learning. To accomplish this, a tutor has to wear many hats: that of a mentor, a cheerleader, an expert, and others. Many times in the Physical Science class it can seem like an extension of math, an endless list of numbers of formulas that are just given as absolutes..."

"... I believe any student can suceed in the math and sciences regardless of gender or natural ability. Through repition, visulaization, and step by step understanding, any problem can be conquered.

"...My favorite subject is and has always been English, so it is no surprise that I entered the publishing industry after college and am loving it.

With other subjects, it is important to establish your own way of measuring improvement, which will keep motivation high..."

"... I believe that figuring how to start can be the most challenging step in tackling a problem, so as a tutor, I focus on giving students strategies to begin problems and teaching them how to recognize patterns. My favorite academic subjects to tutor are high school math and science, particularly chemistry, and I particularly enjoy tutoring for standardized tests, including the SAT and LSAT. Outside of academics, I spend my time interning at a nonprofit; I am particularly interested in social justice, public service, and issues of global health..."

"The things that truly belong to us are what we are not what we have. This wisdom is attributed to a great stoic philosopher, Epictetus.

Learning and knowledge have always been the greatest good for me..."
