I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from Northern Arizona University and my master's degree in psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience from San Diego State University. I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduates and have clinical experience working with children and teenagers, both typically developing and with autism spectrum disorder. The subjects I tutor are varied, but I focus on statistics and mathematics through pre-calculus along with test preparation and essay writing. I am also available to tutor psychology and German (beginner- and intermediate-level). Although I enjoy helping students improve in all subjects, I find that tutoring for standardized tests offers particularly rewarding experiences given the potential impact on students' future academic endeavors. My teaching style involves helping students find their ideal learning style based on their individual strengths and unique way of perceiving information. I try to focus on teaching "how" to think constructively rather than "what" to think. In my free time, I enjoy exercising in some form outdoors, exploring good coffee shops and local restaurants, planning my next vacation, and spending time with family and friends.
