I received by B.A. in Applied Mathematics with an emphasis in biology from the University of California at Berkeley in May of 2013. Though I enjoy tutoring a broad range of subjects, I love mathematics, and am passionate about making it an engaging and straightforward subject for my students. I also value higher education, and therefore take pride in giving my students the tools to succeed on the SAT to help them begin that journey.

While in high school, I tutored middle school and high school students in math. Later in college, I tutored many of my fellow band members in various levels of calculus. Since graduation, I was able to apply those skills working for the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition in Washington, DC.

Outside tutoring, I love acro yoga, rock climbing, flying trapeze, road biking, and teaching gymnastics. These activities allow me to be active, creative, and playful in my daily life.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I enjoy breaking concepts down into easily understood pieces for my students. This allows my students to have a positive learning experience on the way to understanding a larger, more complicated topic.
