I recently obtained my MSC in Global Health from UC-San Francisco after finishing my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies (biology and philosophy) at the University of Tennessee. I received merit-based scholarships at both universities, so I am very familiar with college essays for admittance and scholarships. At UT, I was a member of their premier scholars program that allows 15 students in per year. Through that program, I founded a partnership with two low-income high schools in order to provide free tutoring for their students. I've been on both sides of the tutoring relationship and know how frustrating it can be to not understand material in class. I try to make tutoring as fun an engaging as possible with creative examples. I can tutor everything from literature to algebra. I'm super easy going and have fun with my students. In my free time, I love playing frisbee in the park and seeing movies.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
The material has to be interesting and engaging for the student. This may mean adding jokes, using examples from snapchat, or playing a game. Math is hard for a lot of people, but everyone can succeed when it's presented in the right way.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In my first session, I like to get to know the student: what are their hobbies and interests? Then we'll set goals for the subject I'm tutoring in.
