Im a Truman State University graduate with a passion for helping my students learn in a fun, structured environment. After completing my Bachelor of Science in Psychology, with minors in Biology and Spanish, I moved to Spain to teach English for two years. I was lucky enough to travel extensively throughout my time in Europe, and learned a lot of cultural life-lessons. I currently tutor psychology, biology, life sciences, anatomy, physiology, Spanish 1-4, geography, and study skills. My favorite subjects to teach are anatomy and physiology because they are extremely intricate and study skills because it helps set the student up for a career of success.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, hiking, swimming, and spending time with my family and friends.
