I am a recent graduate of Rice University who is passionate about learning in all forms, shapes and sizes. I believe education to be the gateway to a bright future, and it's my job as a tutor to help people from all walks of live achieve their utmost potential both in school and out of it.
My favorite subjects to tutor are math and writing, but it's a challenge to find a subject I don't love. Languages and literature, playing music, sports from volleyball to softball -- all these have been dear to my heart since I can remember.
I know what it is to be a busy student with sports, hobbies and extra-curriculars, not to mention a host of social demands. And, when you fall behind in school, pressure can build. My hope is that after working together things won't feel so out of reach anymore. I want all my students to know that they already have all the tools they need for success. They might just need a little guidance to see it.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to teach students to teach themselves. Most students who are struggling don't know that they already have all the tools needed to move ahead academically. My job is to show them that they do, and then show them how to use those tools.
