A great pleasure in my life is learning something so thoroughly that I can share it with others. I have had the opportunity to share my knowledge with students ranging from grade school to college level, watching as they gain control of a tricky concept. Beginning in high school at St. Thomas Episcopal School here in Houston, I began tutoring in Latin and Math which I found very rewarding. When I moved on to study Philosophy in college at Mary Baldwin College in Virginia, I always kept tutoring close to my heart. Even during my travels to South Asia, I helped students from Japan and South Korea, as they built their comfort with reading, writing and logical analysis of the English language.

Since college, I've been working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Texas Gulf Coast Chapter, learning about fundraising, cancer research and marketing. Now I'm ready to get back to my love of working with students! When not working to find a cure for cancer, I like to read the New Yorker, watch films from the Criterion Collection, practice new recipes, travel to new spots or hang out by the water.

I believe my ability to empathize coupled with my patience and indefatigable optimism helps to make me a great tutor. My students, who have ranged from twelve-year-olds struggling with Latin's nominative case to college students needing a better grasp on how to build an essay around an ethical dilemma, all have found my teaching style comforting yet provocative. My greatest victory in tutoring occurred when my student won "most improved" in Latin at Houston's St. John's school, after six months once a week with me.

I am confident that my communication skills, creativity and experience will expand your child's abilities and academic goals. I have a very strong work ethic and know you’ll find me to be punctual, dedicated, and a great addition to your education team.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to the pursuit of knowledge and success with you and your child! Let's start learning together!
