I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a Master's degree in Hydrology. I also have a Bachelor's in Geology from UMass-Amherst. In graduate school, I taught lab sections for geology classes and mentored students. As an academic advisor, I have also worked with college students on study skills, career planning, and success strategies.
I like helping students one-on-one on math, science, and GRE test prep. My tutoring philosophy is to try to relate new material to a student's interests or information they already know. I believe that even challenging subjects can be made enjoyable to learn.
I enjoy teaching, mentoring, outdoor activities, yoga and travel. Often combining these interests, I have taught english to non-native speakers in India and Nepal and I am a certified yoga teacher.
