I graduated from Bard College at Simon's Rock at age 19 with a Bachelors of Arts in Philosophy and Science Foundations. After graduating, I applied to and was accepted into the New York City Teaching Fellows. As part of that program, I earned a Masters in Education, focusing on adolescent mathematics education and students with disabilities.

Most of my experience tutoring comes as a Math and Special Education teacher. I regularly work with students after school on Math homework, ranging from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus. I enjoy tutoring because it is much easier to get to know a student, and for a student to get to know me, one-one-one as opposed to in a large class. As a tutor, I always try to find a student's strengths and use that as a starting point to build on. I know many students dislike or are even fearful of Math, but it has always been my favorite subject as a student and as a teacher. I want to make Math as exciting and relevant to every student as it has always been for me.

In my free time, I like to read, cook, and kayak. I grew up near the water in Maryland, so kayaking was easy to do. I do not get the chance as frequently in NYC, but I have been out on both rivers!
