I am a member of both the national science research honor society (Sigma Xi) and the national statistics honor society (Mu Sigma Rho). I have been employed by Varsity Tutors for three years. I also worked as a Teaching Assistant, Grader, and Tutor in the Statistics Department at Amherst College for three semesters. I am particularly passionate about test preparation and math education.
