I am a graduate of the University of Michigan where I earned my bachelor of science degree in cellular and molecular biology. I chose this major because I am fascinated with how cells in the body interact with each other and the pathways in which they communicate. Originally being pre-med, I applied to medical schools the year after I graduated. Also during this gap year, I taught introductory chemistry lab for science majors at Grand Valley State University. After some self reflection I decided medical school was not the path I wanted to take and decided instead to move to New York City to pursue my other passion of performing on stage. However, due to my background in academia and teaching, I desired to maintain plugged into that world in whatever way I could. That is how I discovered VarsityTutors.

Tutoring allows me to use my experience and skills to help other students grow and learn in subjects they like and in subjects they dislike. What is most important to me is whether or not the student truly understands the material they are learning in class. In my experience, when a student "gets it," they are given confidence to continue to learn in that subject. The most exciting thing for me as an educator is to help students find excitement in what they are learning - a "cool" factor. Showing students how cool (even fun!) learning certain subjects can be because of how it relates to them is an irreplaceable tool to get them interested in actually learning something, instead of simply "getting by" by cramming the night before. I do my absolute best to provide a positive, fun, engaging experience for students which focuses on their potential to succeed by showing them how much they have already accomplished to give them confidence to tackle new obstacles.

Though my passion is biology and I tutor all levels, I am also skilled at English and writing and love to edit and help craft essays. I am also certified to tutor the ACT. When I am not tutoring, I am either singing somewhere, checking in on Michigan Football news, spending time with friends, or out exploring some part of wonderful New York City. Go Blue!
