I received my Bachelors of Science in Sociology and my Bachelors of Art in Political Science from Penn State. After graduating from college I conducted terrorism research for several years. I moved to Pittsburgh in 2013 to pursue my interest in Web Development and User Interface Design. During my research and studies I worked with students in the writing center and acted as a teaching assistant. I found that the key to improvement is tailoring the best method of studying for each students unique way of learning. It is my goal to help each student find their unique learning strategy. Everybody learns differently, and once a student figures out their strengths it becomes much easier to improve. In my spare time I enjoy reading, playing strategy games, and watching too many movies with my girlfriend. I'm happy to be a part of Varsity Tutors and I look forward to working with you.
