I am a current undergraduate at Brown University majoring in Anthropology and Biochemistry. At Brown, I hold two student advisor positions in addition to being a teaching assistant for both Genetics and Human Evolution. In high school at Phillips Academy, I taught a seminar course in personal and community health, and for several years, I have been giving private music lessons in voice, violin, and music theory. In high school, I studied abroad in Rennes, France and now tutor immigrant children in Providence, RI in French.

The most important lesson that I have gleaned from these teaching experiences is the importance of motivating students to make discoveries themselves. Though many students, especially in test-prep scenarios, are primarily concerned with arriving at the correct answer, I believe that this doesn't help them outside of the sessions. I am therefore committed to helping students find ways to understand the process, not just the final product. To me, this is the most rewarding aspect of teaching, and it requires patience, encouragement, and enthusiasm. As a private music teacher for both children and adults, I know how to joke and motivate without talking down to my students. Being a teaching assistant and seminar leader have given me important skills in creating a fun learning environment. My background in theatre (particularly comedic theatre, my favorite) means I know how to excite and engage people. Most importantly, my own passion for the subjects I teach is infectious, which makes the hard subjects feel fun and even easy.
