I am a graduate of Willamette University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I earned my Master's of Science at U.C. Santa Cruz. My Master's degree is in Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology. While at U.C. Santa Cruz, I worked as a teaching assistant in a microbiology discussion section and a microbiology laboratory section. I work in public health, but also plan to study for my PhD in Microbiology and Infectious Disease. The subjects that I tutor include standardized test preparation, and biological sciences. However, my most favorite subjects are the microbiological sciences and AP Biology. I believe in adapting to the student's strengths and previous knowledge. Students respond to my approachable analogies, examples, and visual representations for clarification. In my free time, I run half marathons, practice Yoga, and I am learning to knit.
