Ever since playing "the math game" on long road trips, when my dad would quiz me on the multiplication table, I have had a passion for learning and for making learning enjoyable and even fun. As a tutor, I hope to share my love for math and science with my students. I have an approachable, easygoing demeanor and I like working with others. I also consider myself to be very well organized.
I am an Atlanta native who just recently moved back to Georgia after graduating magna cum laude from Wellesley College. I was a dual magnet student in math/science and performing arts at North Springs Charter High School in Sandy Springs. While at Wellesley, I was a statistics teaching assistant for two years. I collaborated with professors to design innovative teaching strategies for students to remember and understand mathematical concepts and worked both individually with students and in small groups. I also was actively involved in Science Outreach and a founding member of SLAM DUNK (Science Learning and Mentoring, Discovering and Understanding New Knowledge), a group that partnered with the Science Club for Girls. I was part of a team that mentored middle school students to apply their passion for sports into learning more about biomechanics and anatomy. During my senior year, I completed a year-long independent study project developing and implementing an exercise physiology curriculum for middle school girls. Learning was very active and hands on. One of the primary goals of my teaching style is to try to go beyond the textbook and create analogies that help to make difficult material less abstract.
I aspire to be a physical therapist since I will be able to combine my love for running and sports with my academic interest in science. Also, as a physical therapist, I will continue to educate others by teaching patients exercises to rebuild strength.
I look forward to tutoring future students and learning more about their interests, learning styles and goals. I will adjust my method of teaching accordingly and look forward to the opportunity to help a student master their desired subject. Not only do I believe that a student will make gains from being tutored, I will be more fulfilled, as I truly enjoy interacting with and helping others.
