Double-majoring in Religious Studies and Cognitive Sciences at Rice University has armed me with a passion for critical thinking. I encourage students to approach problems from several angles and make connections as they go along. One of the most effective tools I use while tutoring is goal-setting. By showing students the way in which to approach goals, whether the goals are related to test scores, grades, or acceptances, they learn self-discipline and take pride in their accomplishments. I love working with students in a wide array of subjects, but my favorites are reading and writing. I also have a lot of experience in preparation for standardized tests and I try to lessen the worry during these sometimes stressful events. In my free time I am an avid reader and writer and also enjoy playing rugby, racing BMX, and cooking.
