I am a registered nurse and a recent graduate of Emory University's School of Nursing. One of the most important lessons I took away from my nursing program is that nurses are teachers who empower patients to care for themselves. I pursued nursing for the same reason I love tutoring – my desire to connect to different types of people, help them work through challenges, and promote understanding.
My passion for tutoring began in high school when I joined a peer- mentoring program. I tutored math ranging from special education-level algebra to calculus, and I experienced the gratification of helping students to improve their understanding, confidence, and grades. During my four years in college, I taught 2nd – 7th graders at a Sunday School. This experience taught me how to plan creative and engaging activities tailored to different personalities and age groups, and I had a lot of fun doing it! During my volunteer work and internship at the Emory Autism Center, I designed and facilitated activities according to the strengths, challenges, and interests of the unique individuals in the group. Finally, in my nursing school, I often met with peers and study groups to explain difficult concepts and reinforce my own learning. I have reviewed over 3,000 NCLEX-style questions and look forward to sharing my question-taking strategies and discussing rationales with students!
Through my own journey as a student, I have developed a love of learning and the learning process, as well as an appreciation for hard work. I graduated high school as a valedictorian, achieved a 2300 SAT score, earned a full-ride scholarship to Emory University, and graduated my nursing program with a 3.9 GPA.
I know how to help students identify their questions, break down challenging concepts into simpler ideas, develop critical thinking skills, and ultimately achieve results. I am honored to be a part of the varsity tutors platform, and l look forward to connecting with more students!
