I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. During my time at Penn, I tutored middle school and high school students in reading, writing, and math through the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project. Following graduation, I worked and lived abroad for two years, first in Sydney, Australia, and then in Istanbul, Turkey. During my time in Turkey, I worked as an SAT and TOEFL tutor with high school and college students.
While I am comfortable tutoring a broad range of subjects, I am the most passionate about history, reading, and writing. As a former Managing Editor for a tech company, I understand how vital reading and writing are as a basis for other studies. And as a former history major, I know the importance of building analytical skills, and how a strong analytical mind can lead to progress and success in a multitude of subjects.
I loved being a student and continue to teach myself new things today. Hopefully, I can impart my love of learning onto my students. While I know students may not be passionate about every topic they study ,I hope to be able to find at least one part of each subject that students can personally connect to. Most importantly, if I can impart one thing to my students, it is self-confidence. Performing poorly in one subject can have a deleterious affect on other aspects of academic life and I firmly believe that confidence is half the battle. I love seeing a student's face when they realize they understand a subject and that they can truly succeed.
Outside of tutoring, I am a live music junky who loves to read, write, and do anything that gets me outdoors.

In my spare time, I love to listen to live music, read, write, and doing anything active or outdoors. I'm a big fan of yoga and I walk everywhere I can. I love hiking, camping, and I'll never say no to a beach weekend. I'm a bit of a history nerd and love reading American history books in my spare time. I'm also a recent Podcast convert - they make all of my walks go by quickly!
