I am a recent graduate from Vassar College where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a Mathematics correlate. I am continuing my education at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, where I will soon graduate as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. I have positioned myself so that for the rest of my life I can pursue my undeniable thirst for knowledge, while interacting with humans and animals alike, in hopes of leaving a positive mark on the world.

I recognize that learning is not as simple as absorbing information. Personally, I think understanding the way something works is more important than memorizing an answer. I know first hand that everyone learns differently, and it is nearly impossible to learn in a meaningful way if one cannot relate to the material. Understanding the way a student learns, and tailoring my teaching method to the student's strengths is a unique and motivating challenge that makes me an effective tutor. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, my favorite ones to tutor are math and science, especially as seen on the GRE, ACT, and SAT.

I am professional, patient, understanding, a strong communicator, and nothing fascinates me more than the way people think. Additionally, I am no stranger to standardized tests, college applications, grueling coursework, or the precarious work-life balancing act. In my down time I love to swim, hike with my dogs, read, cook, surf, and travel. I look forward to working with many of you this summer.
