Certified Tutor

I received Bachelor's Degree of Science in Psychology, cum Laude with highest honors from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. While studying, I was employed as a laboratory technician at the Rhodes Laboratory of Behavioral Neuroscience, where the bulk of my work, including my senior honors thesis, concerned the adverse of effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on the developing hippocampal region of the brain. After graduating, I served a year, full time, as an Americorps member with City Year, tutoring and mentoring 7th and 8th grade students in the Englewood Community of Chicago in 1-on-1 and small group settings. I am currently working toward a TEFL certification that would allow me to teach English as a foreign language abroad. With Varsity Tutors, I tutor a wide range of subjects including biology, algebra, and English, as well as ACT and GRE prep. I employ a student-centered teaching style, encouraging students to think independently and draw their own conclusions about the content. In my free time, I enjoy appreciating and composing music and literature, and take an active role in grassroots politics.
