I love learning new things, and I love engaging others in the excitement of understanding something new. I am currently a master’s student at Duke Divinity School, where I study as a Theology, Medicine, and Culture Fellow, after having spent some time in biology research. I enjoy both sciences and humanities (particularly when they overlap), and I graduated with a BS from Duke University in Biology & Philosophy.

Tutoring for me is about encouraging students to do their best. Studying is a matter of opening oneself up to the perspectives of a discipline, and everyone is naturally capable of this. Academic achievement is a matter of mindful planning, building on one’s strengths, and confident execution, and I know from experience that these are best done with guidance.

As a student myself, I have a flexible schedule and look forward to meeting with students, coaching prospective test-takers, providing constructive feedback on essays, and providing mentoring advice.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Teaching is a matter of recognizing students' interests and strengths, and cultivating the right study environment for students to grow.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During our first session, we need to get to know a bit about each other, so we can see how each other thinks, find out what makes learning exciting, and trust each other so that we can be comfortable tackling difficult subjects. We'll take a look at the work before us - problem sets, essays drafts, or test content. From there, we will work together on an effective, efficient plan that makes sense for the student. Finally, we'll get to work!
