I'm a rising Junior at the University of Chicago studying Computational Neurosciences and Fundamentals: Literature & Philosophy. I've tutored 7th and 8th graders in Basic Algebra and essay construction and taught undergraduates Biostatistics and the literature of Valdimir Nabokov, so I'm prepared to work with any age or skill level. When I'm not tutoring this summer, I'll be doing electrophysiological research at NYU's Center for Neural Science and preparing to write my BA on James Joyce's Ulysses. I'm extremely versatile with expertise in a range of subjects and really enjoy helping students learn. I also excel at standardized testing and am excited to share the strategies that made me successful. In my free time, some of my favorite things to do are act, play guitar, and bike along the river.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I like to work from the foundation the student already has. Instead of teaching a topic in a vacuum, I find students are most successful when new information is connected to their existing web of knowledge.
