I earned a degree in Energy, Business and Finance from Penn State University's Schreyer Honors College. For the past four years, I have taught middle school math and science in South Carolina and Texas. At one point, I even had the opportunity to be an environmental educator at an Outdoor School in Massachusetts! My favorite subjects to tutor are math and science - not only because that is what I have a teaching background in, but because those were my favorite subjects growing up.

As a teacher and tutor, I like to push the child to figure out the answers themselves. It's easy to give them the answers, but I like to do a lot of asking "Why?" and "How?" which can help them lead themselves to solving the answer.

Outside of academia, I LOVE all kinds of sports: softball, soccer, etc. One of my favorite hobbies is running. I love competing in races like half marathons! I also love to travel a lot (New York City is one of my favorite cities in the world). Of course, I love spending time with my friends and family whenever I get the chance :).
