I am a native of Seattle and an alumnus of Garfield High School. I graduated from Whitman College in 2011 with a degree in Biology. I have always loved science, and I relish opportunities to explore the intricate workings of the natural world. I find a supreme sense of wonder in learning how the world works, and I delight in sharing this with others. Natural sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) are my favorite subjects, but I also enjoy Math, History, and Writing. I would be delighted to tutor students in any subject, and I am happy to help with standardized test prep, study habits and time management, college applications, and much more.
Science may not come naturally to some students, but I believe that enthusiasm and persistence are more important than natural ability. I hope to share my passion for science with younger learners. I recently started a part-time job at the Seattle Aquarium as a mentor and supervisor for high school volunteers working on the youth-led Puget Sound: We Love You campaign. Encouraging and supporting young people's efforts to make the world a better place is very rewarding work, and I love getting to go to work each day.
In my free time, I enjoy skiing in the winter, waterskiing and cycling in the summer, cooking all the time, and enjoying the company of my good friends and the great opportunities the Northwest has to offer. I love reading, especially books that expand my knowledge and my understanding of the world.
