I have taught piano lessons, tutored, and taught middle school for a total of 7 years. I have a bachelor's degree in history education and a minor in math education from Brigham Young University, where I attended on a National Merit scholarship. While in college, I worked as a writing tutor in a writing center on campus for three years, helping students with history and social science essays as well as letters of intent for internships. I also spent a semester in London studying history and English. I taught 7th grade math (pre-algebra) for a year and was the peer tutoring mentor teacher during that time. For the last year and a half I have worked with the teenage girls at church. I teach biweekly Sunday School lessons and help plan weekly activities. Currently I stay at home with our two little boys while my husband works on a PhD at Stanford and I love it, but I miss teaching and working with students.

I tutor a wide range of subjects including history, writing, and math. I am passionate about each of them for different reasons. History helps us identify bias, see cause and effect, think critically, and learn empathy. Writing helps us synthesize our thoughts into coherent arguments and can even help us understand things more clearly. Math teaches critical thinking, but also persistence and creativity. What is most important to me, however, is that students feel confident enough to keep trying until they succeed. Teaching 7th grade math opened my eyes to the lack of confidence students often suffer from, and I want all students to feel empowered to learn and succeed rather than just get by.

In my spare time I enjoy board games, reading everything from parenting books to classic literature, yoga, lunch with friends, and that energetic feeling after completing a good run.
