I earned my Bachelors of Science in Biology from the University of Maryland at College Park. I also attended Good Counsel High School where I completed the International Baccalaureate diploma and the Extended Essay. I have worked in public health for five years on an array of topics including mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in pathogens, food safety and security, nuclear preparedness, disease surveillance, and medical supply prioritization. Before this position, I worked in laboratories at the National Cancer Institute and the USDA.

My experience uniquely positions me to be an effective tutor in both the Biological Sciences and Writing. I love words and writing and enjoy editing papers to help others improve their work. I am currently published on three papers and have written dozens of private reports.

I think people work best when they enjoy their work, so as a tutor I bring a lighthearted attitude and good humor. I am a great match for students looking for a knowledgeable tutor who can (1) help them with concepts in Biology, (2) have a meticulous and thoughtful eye for their writing, or (3) simply improve their test taking skills.

Update: I have just returned from 3 years of teaching in South Korea - I'm very excited to be back!
