I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I earned a B.A. in Government and a B.S. in Communication Studies. This fall, I will be returning to my alma mater to pursue a Master of Public Health. Over the course of my undergraduate career, I had the privilege of tutoring students of all ages in language arts, writing, the GRE and study skills. I am very familiar with that overwhelming feeling of anxiety that people can feel when faced with eight empty pages left on an eight page research paper or unsatisfying GRE practice scores. I want students to walk away from a session with the tools they need to tackle an obstacle that previously felt insurmountable, so I take a very hands-on approach to these subjects by actively guiding students through prompts, GRE strategies, and research outlines. I want the student to walk away from each session with a collaboratively created plan of action that will help quell their anxiety and guide their efforts going forward. I take a similar approach to life in my spare time - I love to challenge myself with hobbies like rock climbing, cooking and creative writing. After each successful (or wildly unsuccessful) attempt at something new, I take what I learned and modify my approach to the problem until one day I manage to create something delicious!
