I received my degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where I majored in History and minored in Political Science. During my college career I also worked and did extensive community service in the realm of education. This includes volunteering as a debate teacher at a middle school for 4 years, teaching a SAT preparation class to high school students, and creating a 6-month college preparation curriculum that combined standardized test preparation with the college application process.

History and logic are huge passions of mine and are my favorite subjects to teach. I am able to offer tutoring in a wide variety of History classes and standardized tests because I have spent the last two years as a high school History teacher for Teach For America, which has made me familiar with teaching practices that translate well into one-on-one instruction. I am also familiar with test-taking strategies and test preparation in the SAT, LSAT, GMAT and AP Exams because I have taken each exam myself and have previous experience tutoring others for those exams. My approach to tutoring focuses on building self-confidence and connecting each student's individual strengths and experiences to the subject matter to make it easier to master.

I was recently accepted into the University of Chicago Law School, where I will earn my J.D and begin a career in public interest law. Outside of teaching, I am passionate about sports - particularly football, basketball, and soccer. I enjoy watching period pieces (no surprise given my interest in History), and playing video games. I also have a passion for traveling and am nearly fluent in Spanish.
