I am passionate about higher education, and I hope to dedicate my career to assisting college and college-bound students with their scholarly pursuits. My academic experience is diverse and growing: I received my B.A. in Art History and Psychology from St. Mary's College of Maryland, and I begin my Masters in Library and Information Science program this summer through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As a Senior Library Technician at Miami University, I worked closely with students, helping them fine-tune their research methods and to navigate complex computer programs. I enjoy breaking down daunting tasks and intimidating concepts to simpler steps, and discussing the underlying logic of this problem-solving process. In this manner, I work with students to develop strong writing skills, and helping them confidently approach the Verbal and Essay components of the GRE. I also have a pedagogic predilection for GRE vocabulary, playing with mnemonics and even encouraging doodling to remember the tougher words.
Beyond my academic and tutoring interests, I am a freelance illustrator with a lifelong passion for illustration, comics, and the graphic novel. I am also passionate about travel, hiking, and really good coffee.
