I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia, where I double majored in Psychology and Cognitive Science. More recently, I received my M.S. in Criminal Justice from the Wilder School of Government & Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University. During my time at VCU, I had the privilege of serving as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, which allowed me the opportunity to teach undergraduate courses. Among my responsibilities as a TA, my favorite tasks involved my ability to work one-on-one with students and see them improve their grades over the course of the semester with my help. These days I am most interested in improving the critical thinking and critical writing skills of students who will comprise the next generation of college graduates and working professionals. The ability to express oneself clearly through writing is an invaluable skill both within academia and the professional workforce. I believe it is my job to provide students with the necessary preparation and skills they will need to succeed in a college environment and beyond. When I am not tutoring, I enjoy reading fiction (with a special soft spot for sci-fi/fantasy), running and training for my next marathon, and experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen.
