For my undergraduate studies, I attended the University of Notre Dame on a swimming scholarship. I graduated magna cum laude with double major in Classics and Art History. I attended the University of Texas at Austin for graduate school, and in 2009 I earned an M.A. in Art History with a concentration on Roman art and archaeology. It is during my time in graduate school that I began tutoring students, and I have been doing so ever since. I also worked as a teaching assistant throughout graduate school in both the Department of Classics and College of Fine Arts. I later worked as a middle school teacher, where I taught 7th and 8th grade Latin as well as study skills classes. I later returned to the University of Texas to attend law school. I graduated in May 2014 with honors from law school, and I now work as a law clerk to a federal judge.

As much as I enjoy my new legal career, I truly love tutoring. As someone who required tutoring as a middle and high school student, I can relate to my students. I understand what it feels like to struggle or need a little extra help, and I also know what it takes to improve on weaknesses. I can tutor in a variety of subjects, but I have the most experience in Latin, English and writing. For these subjects, I focus on basic concepts, such as grammar, syntax, vocabulary, to ensure that students possess a solid foundation of knowledge on which they can build. I believe that mastering fundamentals is critical to understanding any subject and provides the best chance of success in the long run. No matter what we work on, together, however, I strive to make my tutoring sessions fun and collaborative. To foster this kind of tutoring environment, I have incorporated a variety of strategies to help students, depending on individual strengths and weaknesses.

In my spare time, I am a film buff and enjoy reading, swimming, and watching the Chicago Bulls.
