I am a graduate student (Mathematics) at Portland State University and a graduate of Whitman College (2010 - B.A., Psychology). I have been a tutor and teacher for over ten years, in which time I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds. My main passion is teaching high school mathematics, especially algebra and calculus. I have worked as a full-time Math fellow, working with high school freshman to help them reach grade-level proficiency in algebra and geometry. I have also worked as a professional SAT/ACT tutor for the last four years.

My first love is Math tutoring. I get a thrill out of helping my students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of mathematical knowledge which will serve them for the rest of their lives. My tutoring style is energetic and playful, but also intense: I love to have fun with my students, but I'm serious about content and student-driven learning. I love to teach using pictures, stories and analogies. My favorite subjects to teach are Calculus, Algebra/Trigonometry and Spanish.

Outside of Math, my hobbies include board/card games (especially chess), music (I play piano and cello), hiking/birdwatching and video games. My favorite video games are Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Half Life 2 and Super Metroid.
