I am a graduate of Wellesley College, where I earned my degree in Classical Civilization and English Literature. After graduation, I entered the merchant training program with a high-end department store, and I spent eight years with them working in both merchant and store management roles. After my time in luxury retailing, I returned to school to earn my MBA at The Ohio State University, with a major in Organizational Behavior and a minor in Finance. My business experience combined with my return to education inspired me to pursue a PhD in business. I am currently entering my second year of the doctoral program in Organizational Behavior at Washington University in St. Louis, Olin School of Business. I have acted as a tutor and a mentor throughout my education and my business career, with students of all ages and backgrounds. My teaching philosophy is that I am a coach whose role is to understand how the student thinks so that I can ask the right questions that will challenge them to learn and internalize new or difficult concepts. I firmly believe that a great tutoring relationship is built upon trust, respect for each other, engaging in two-way dialogue, and a good dose of humor! I enjoy tutoring a variety of subjects-from the technicalities of math to the challenge of idea generation in writing. I also have an interest helping students improve test taking techniques and study methods. I love to travel and to meet new people, I am a regular practitioner of yoga, and I have a sweet little dog named Einstein.
