I am a Virginia native and familiar with the D.C. metro area. I am a graduate of the University of Chicago where I majored in Biology. My area of interest is Genetics, and I hope to eventually receive my PhD in Bioinformatics.

I believe that learning is all about asking questions. The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually. Being an effective questioner and an astute observer of the unknown is a life-long task, and through hard work and focus, I believe anyone can grow into a stronger thinker and a more effective student.

I also think science is very fun, and the best way to improve in a subject that may be difficult is to find the parts of it which are enjoyable to you. I believe tutoring should be flexible to the needs of the student, and that being open to different approaches is a sure-fire way to find what works best for you.
I thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear from you!
