I graduated from Princeton University in the Spring, where I received a B.A. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology with minors in Global Health & Health Policy and Gender & Sexuality Studies. I have been tutoring since 2006, when I joined a program tutoring with a local middle school. Since then, I have worked with high school and college students in a broad variety of subjects. Although I am passionate about all of the subjects that I teach, I have always been especially interested in Biology, and I love working with students to see the big picture connections between the facts of life. In general, my tutoring style focuses on drawing generalizable principles out of the material to help a student internalize and fully absorb content, which I believe makes learning a rewarding activity in its own right. In my spare time, I enjoy reading science books and blogs, trying out new recipes, and exploring the many museums throughout the city.
