I grew up in Denver, CO and I am currently a junior at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA where I study Biology and Public Health. After college, I hope to attend medical school and become an OB/GYN. School was always challenging for me. I had poor reading comprehension and I really struggled with math. No matter how hard I worked, sometimes the material just would not click. I worked with my teachers and tutors who helped me overcome many of my learning barriers. I have been tutoring students for 6+ years in all academic and organizational areas. I am patient, kind, understanding, and willing to take the time that each student needs to understand a concept. I understand school work does not come naturally for everyone, and I am here to help you through whatever might be challenging you. I look forward to working with you and getting through this together!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to meet each student where they are. There is no one right way to learn or understand something, and I always strive to approach each topic from a perspective that will help you achieve your goals and not feel overwhelmed.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session, I will talk to you and get to know what kind of student you are. I will find out what we need to focus on and what teaching styles work for you, and then we will move forward.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
The most important part of being an independent learner is having the confidence to take your learning into your own hands. I will help you build up your confidence to tackle anything that you find challenging!
