During my K-12 education I received tutoring in various areas including ESL, music and math. In high school I began tutoring because tutoring had been a positive experience in my life. In college I majored in Biology and minored in creative writing. During my four years at Scripps I had the opportunity to gain great conceptual understanding in both the sciences and humanities.
I have always had a passion for learning. My curiosity for knowledge has allowed me to study in the humanities, the sciences, and in music. Over the past six years I have had various opportunities to tutor students in these subject areas. My main goal for these students, as well as future students, is to gain conceptual understanding of the material.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I strongly believe that every individual learns differently. My goal is to tailor my tutoring methods to each individual student.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Becoming an independent learner begins by obtaining conceptual understanding. I hope to aid students in seeking conceptual understanding of the material as opposed to rote memorization.
