I am a student and life-long learner who is currently between undergraduate and graduate school. In May 2015, I received a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience and Biology from Centre College, and in September 2015, I will attend The Ohio State University to work towards a PhD in neuroscience. Throughout my academic journey, I have been guided by incredible teachers who have served as friends, mentors, and role models. I see teaching as a way to give back to my role models by passing down their knowledge to future generations of students. My well-rounded liberal arts education qualifies me to tutor a variety of subjects including algebra, biology, psychology, reading, and writing. As a neuroscience and biology double-major, I have an especially strong background in psychology and biology; however, I am also passionate about reading and writing as aptitude in these subjects forms the foundation of effective communication and comprehension of all other subjects. My teaching philosophy emphasizes individual learning and personal attention. I graduated from a small college where this philosophy is considered paramount, and by working as a teaching assistant there, I developed my skills as a teacher capable of providing a personalized education. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading poetry and fiction, hiking, and training for my first marathon.
