Attending a private Catholic school for nearly 16 years, I was no stranger to difficult courses, time management, and tutoring-- both ends of it, that is. It was not always easy keeping up with the rigorous demands of AP Biology, AP English Literature, and AP Calculus BC-- on top of being tennis captain-- but I found that keeping myself motivated, on my toes academically, and willing to reach out to others made everything much easier. I kept myself motivated by rewarding myself with things I love-- spending time with friends, hiking, biking, and watching Will Ferrell movies. Furthermore, I stayed on my toes academically by tutoring underclassmen in Biology, English, and Math. While I tutored students, I also received help from Varsity Tutors when I was preparing for the ACT. During my senior year of high-school, Varsity Tutors honestly changed my life, allowing me to succeed and attend the University of Colorado Boulder on scholarship.
Currently, I am a sophomore Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology major at Boulder and love every minute of it. However, when I am not studying or doing homework, I am either involved in my sorority (Kappa Alpha Theta), at the gym, or hiking up the beautiful Flatirons. Through my sorority, I carry on my tutoring work, primarily emphasizing chemistry and writing. While I help many girls with their courses, I believe that I have the opportunity to help a greater amount of students through Varsity Tutors. Overall, I hope to instill an academic and personal confidence in my students that will remain strong long after finals week.
