I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2009 with a BA in Visual Arts and a BS in Physiology and Developmental Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I tutored a variety of subjects and students during undergrad, most noticeably other undergrads in their advanced writing courses as a University Writing Fellow. I also tutored middle and high school students in their math, science, and English coursework, as well as providing ACT prep for them. Following my undergrad, I was accepted to Teach For America and trained and taught as an early elementary education teacher in all content areas for four years (while also teaching elementary visual arts in the fourth year). During this time, I was the primary first grade Math curriculum planner for my school, as well as a lead planner for first through second grade guided reading. While I can tutor a broad range of subjects and students, my absolute favorite subject to teach is English, including both Reading and Writing, mostly because I find this subject to just be so enjoyable. I believe in a more Socratic and investigative approach to teaching as I think that the deepest learning comes from answering guided questions and coming to one's own conclusions, then matching those conclusions to available standards and literature. I also believe in providing modes of concrete, pictorial, and abstract learning for every standard to truly solidify understanding for all learning styles. In my free time, I love visiting art galleries and I am currently working in a contemporary gallery as well! I also enjoy making art works and sitting back with a delicious new book.
