In my experience, knowledge opens doors, minds, and people to new experiences, opportunities, and chances to succeed. This is why I love learning and have a history of engaging in this field. For three years in high school, I was a student editor in my school's writing center. During the summers, I worked at the Houston Museum of Natural Science as a paid teaching assistant and as a volunteer leading tours of the exhibit halls. Currently, I am a Calculus I and II peer tutor at Bryn Mawr College, where I attend school. My intended major(s) are Math and Chemistry.

With Varsity Tutors, I am certified to teach math from kindergarten to Calculus II and prepare students for the math portions of standardized tests (PSAT and ACT). Math is my favorite subject to teach, because it allows people to understand the world with its infinite practical applications. As a result, I want to help other students gain an appreciation for this extremely useful discipline. This being said, I understand there is no "one size fits all" approach to learning, especially for math. Therefore, I approach each job as a problem solving opportunity where the end goal is for me to find the best teaching method for each student to succeed. I look forward to meeting you and getting started!
