I earned my PhD in Microbiology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and my BA in Biology from Sarah Lawrence College. I also have a Certificate of Advanced Study from The College of St. Rose, where I studied Adolescent Education. I currently work as a research scientist but tutor students because I enjoy teaching. I especially love working with students one-on-one. I currently tutor Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and general science. I have loved Biology since I was in High School and especially love Microbiology because it is completely fascinating. My tutoring style tends to be a mix of both auditory (explaining) and visual (drawing) styles with the understanding that each student learns in their own way. I think it is essential for each student to find meaning in what they are learning. In my spare time, I enjoy horseback riding, playing with my dogs, tending my plants, and watching movies.
