I'm a senior at Rice University and I'm majoring in Earth Science, specializing in geophysics. I have a strong background in science and math, as well as several years' experience working with children ages 7-18. I enjoy teaching because it's like a puzzle: what's the best way to explain this concept to this student, based on his/her background knowledge and learning style.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and taking field trips, reading, and playing on Rice's club rugby team.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My goal is to ensure that my student knows not only HOW to use a technique, but also WHY. This kind of understanding aids in applying skills to new and novel situations.
