I am working toward my B.A. in Neuroscience with minors in Economics and History at Northwestern. I previously worked at Elite Academy Tutors in Glenview, IL. I teach a wide variety of subjects including, but not limited to ACT test prep, Math, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, History, and German. My teaching philosophy has always been trying to get the student passionate in the subject themselves. I have found that this can make the tutoring process much easier. Outside of the academic world my interests include playing music, reading, and hiking.
