I recently graduated from MIT with a BS in Environmental Engineering and a concentration in History. I will be attending graduate school in the fall - so the GRE is very fresh in my mind! At MIT I served as an undergraduate TA for two courses: Introduction to Computer Engineering (Java programming) and Fluid Mechanics. I currently tutor students at FSU in a variety of Math subjects. I am a patient and positive person, and love seeing others succeed!
Outside of tutoring, I enjoy playing tennis, water and snow skiing, weight lifting, gardening, cooking, and reading. My academic interests lie in understanding the impacts of climate change and human activity on water resources.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that the best way to learn is through doing or through connecting a topic with relevant real world examples. I am a strongly visual learner and feel that if I can picture a certain problem, I can gain a much better understanding of what is going on.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
During a first session with a student I like to gauge their strengths and weaknesses, and assess their goals to determine the best approach for working with them.
