I am a recent graduate of University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Womens & Gender Studies. Having been a science nerd throughout high school, I knew that I would want to study biochemistry at university, but I also wanted to strengthen my writing, analytical, and research abilities in a non-scientific context. So focusing on both was perfect for me because I was able to develop analytical and problem-solving skills in two very different contexts. Having this background also allows me to feel comfortable tutoring a range of subjects.

My tutoring style can best be described as collaborative. Much of the time the problems we will tackle together will be difficult or confusing, and I will guide our work to hone in on exactly where the difficulty lies. While working to use our time efficiently, I also believe that an intense, lecture-driven approach is rarely conducive to fostering an atmosphere of curiosity and willingness to try. Therefore, I will regularly solicit feedback, encourage questions, and assess what methods work best for you so that I can adjust my approach accordingly. Having tutored students since high school, I firmly believe that learning and education can be life-changing when we are curious, determined, and willing to make mistakes.

When I am not tutoring or working in healthcare, I enjoy playing guitar, singing in a community choir, and watching college basketball.
