I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences from Mount Holyoke College and a Master of Education from the University of Texas at Austin. As a high school teacher, I focused on Biology and Environmental Science and as a middle school teacher I focused on Physical and Earth Science. I am most passionate about tutoring science and helping students understand how to ask questions and develop procedures to answer those questions. When working with students one on one I make sure to evaluate their current knowledge and make sure there's a strong foundation on which we can build. I especially enjoy using visual and hands-on tools to help make abstract principles more concrete. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, crocheting, sewing, cooking and learning new things. Learning is a lifelong pursuit and I enjoy finding ways to make learning fun.
