I have a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Biblical Studies from the Master's College and am currently a getting a PhD in Semitics/Hebrew Bible at The Catholic University of America. Prior to grad school, I was a DC Teaching Fellow and taught Special Education Middle School Math and English for 2 years in a DC Public School. As I primarily worked with students with disabilities while teaching, I learned how to customize the curriculum to meet each student's unique learning needs. I also have 2+ years experience tutoring in English and Math at the Primary and Secondary level. I am available to tutor Elementary and Middle School Math, K-12 English Literature Arts (with particular focus on reading comprehension and writing), and the verbal section of the GRE. I am a firm believer in empowering students to succeed, thus my tutoring is focused on giving my students the tools and strategies necessary to problem solve and be successful on their own. When I am not tutoring, I like learning about different cultures, trying new foods, reading, and riding my bike. I would love to partner with you in your academic success!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is that every student is capable of success given the right tools. Therefore, I individualize my instruction to meet each of my students' unique needs so they can be successful.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I will spend time getting to know the student and do some diagnostic tests to see where the student is at so I can set goals for our sessions.
