I am a senior at Boston University working toward a Bachelor of Arts in biology with a specialization in behavior. This past winter, I studied tropical ecology in Ecuador for four months and one of those months was at a research station in the Amazon rainforest. Aside from my field studies, I have interned at several zoos and aquariums, including Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, with a wide range of species and with the mission of using education to improve the relationship between people and the animals with which we share our planet. I am most passionate about ecology, life sciences, and psychology, but I believe that a well-rounded education is incredibly important and that any subject can be made applicable to any interest.
A fair combination of hard work and fun is my standard for life and for teaching. I like to help students use their strengths to help balance and improve weaknesses. As a previously anxious test-taker myself, I know firsthand how challenging standardized testing can be, but I can share valuable strategies to help a student reach his or her full potential.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing the cello and singing, hiking, kayaking, cooking, and practicing American Sign Language.
