I have a Bachelor Degree in Neuroscience from The Johns Hopkins University. I am a native of Texas and decided to move back here to Houston after I graduated from undergraduate. I am very well versed in the mathematics and sciences, able to provide knowledge and comprehension of higher level material as well as a firm, confident foundation of the basics.
I have experience in working with students ranging from children in pre-academic years to young adult in pursuit of a college degree. During my undergraduate years, I was involved in the founding and management of a program tutoring youth who had classroom troubles or learning disabilities such as dyslexia and ADD. My friendly personality, quick-critical thinking skills and ability to adapt to various learning styles allow me to create innovative ways for the student to learn the information without being overwhelmed. I can break down complex concepts so that they can be pieced together and understood, not just memorized. I also did work with my fellow undergraduate peers at the time.
I look forward to sharing techniques, methods, and strategies to provide to tools necessary to succeed academically. I am often considered a 'fun' tutor by the students and a 'results' tutor by their parents.
In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, watching sports, playing with my two dogs, practicing martial arts, and working with computers and other technology.
