I'm a graduate student and part-time college faculty member in the Phoenix area, but I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I recently moved to Arizona after working as a tutor abroad and am keen to continue tutoring here in my new home. Though I've tutored a wide range of subjects (standardized test prep, French, English, and History, to name a few), the sciences and math are my favorites. I genuinely love the sciences, especially Biology, and I think that this passion and enthusiasm make a real difference while tutoring. I began causally tutoring family friends in high school, and over the years I've worked with students of varied backgrounds -- from those re-taking failed classes to those applying to (and being accepted at) the best universities. I'm proud to say that I've helped all my students reach their goals, frequently pushing them to exceed their expectations.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring all that Arizona has to offer -- it's so different from the east coast that I just can't get enough of it! I also like taking my telescope out into the desert to try my hand at amateur astronomy and photography, experimenting in the kitchen, and cycling. When I'm not out and about, I can frequently be found curled up with a good book or cheering on my favorite soccer team.
