I am Master Tutor Certified by The College Reading and Learning Association (CLRA). I worked as a Head Tutor and Peer Tutor at Muhlenberg College from 2013-2015, and I am ADHD & Learning Disabilities Tutor Certified. I recently graduated from Muhlenberg College with my BS in Neuroscience, with a minor in Sustainability Studies. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude.
Essentially, I am a well-rounded but nerdy college graduate who loves to help others. I am a fun-loving, patient, and calm tutor who takes time and energy to understand how each tutee learns best. Some people are visual learners, others auditory, and others need everything written down. However you learn, I want to take the time to identify your strengths in order to reach your academic (and personal!) goals!
I have experience tutoring middle school, high school, and college students-- but I am also more than willing to tutor other age groups! I love to make learning fun, especially because schoolwork can often be frustrating and exhausting.
Aside from tutoring, I currently do social work at a community-based non-profit organization in Brooklyn, NY.
I am very excited to meet eager learners. Thanks for reading my profile!

What is your teaching philosophy?
Teaching is the process of helping individuals reach their full learning potential. I believe the best way to achieve this is to allow students to come to an understanding of the subject matter on their own, with the guidance and mentoring of teachers and tutors. I like to ask open-ended questions and give students time to organize their thoughts before I provide hints and other types of assistance.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like to give students a "Learning Preferences" questionnaire to help me determine if the student is a visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or other type of learner. This information helps me better understand the student, and gives me vital information to uniquely tailor sessions for a student's needs.
