I've done a lot of things and been to a lot of places, but wherever I go I try to find time to teach or tutor. Whether it's teaching English as a Second Language in Peru, math in Connecticut, or writing in Ypsilanti, I keep teaching in my life because I love the feeling of seeing a student reach a new level.
I'm a big fan of designed independent learning, and my experience has taught me that "studying harder" is not always the answer. With each student, I focus first on organization: what we need to cover and a timeline to get to their goal.
I'm a physician assistant student at Duke and hope to become a clinic director some day. In spare time outside of school , I write, play music, and kick it with friends.
Most recently, I spent about a year in Peru and Ecuador working at a nonprofit clinic and freelancing as a writer. The next place I'd like to go is Senegal or the North of Mali. Life is fun!
