I am a dual-doctorate candidate at the University of Arizona, working towards both clinical and research doctorates in the field of Audiology, which I love! Most of my tutoring time has been spent on mathematical subjects, but I've also tutored various other subjects such as English, SAT prep, and GRE prep. I've also had the opportunity to tutor students with special needs, which was, while challenging, a wonderfully rewarding time in my life. I believe that tutoring involves not only learning particular facts or principles, but it also involves imparting a learning method to the tutee, enabling the student to make the most progress possible. Effective studying involves efficiency, effort, focus, and most of all, having a passion for the material. Having been a student myself for so long now, I feel very well equipped to provide each student with the best tutoring experience possible.

When I'm not in the research lab or tutoring students, I'm usually hiking, climbing, reading, or watching films. I began bouldering last year, and it has become a passion of mine. Tucson's also a tremendous city for hiking, and I feel it's become my home over the last three years.
