I'm excited to be a part of Varsity Tutors. I enjoy working with people to help them achieve their academic potential. Sometimes it just takes someone's coaching to get yourself back on track towards attaining your desired goals. I pride myself on being adaptable, patient, and encouraging--traits that have become invaluable as a tutor. I enjoyed learning math and science in school, and I look forward to sharing that enthusiasm with you! Let's work together on that test prep then!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

The client is boss and I'm just here to help. I'm happy to accommodate the needs of my students.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

This is the time to set expectations and better understand what the student is trying to get out of our sessions, and identify specific weaknesses that we want to cover together.
