Hi! I'm a University of Michigan graduate, where I got my bachelor's degree in history in three years. I've been a history buff all my life and take a particular interest in the American Revolutionary period. Currently, I'm an editor/producer for a major sports website, helping out on the college sports side. Go Blue!

My 11th grade physics teacher taught me an important lesson (aside from the physics, of course!) how to effectively communicate information to someone else. The day after a lesson or homework assignment, he'd ask someone to come to the whiteboard and quickly re-teach the content or go step-by-step through a problem. Each time, it really helped me understand the concept and all its nuances, and I believe that being able to teach a concept to someone else proves mastery of the subject. I stand by that philosophy and my hope is that by the end of a tutoring session, the student can tutor me!

I hope to help students realize their goals through middle school, high school, college and beyond. Every student deserves the assistance and resources they need to be successful, and I hope to support students in reaching their goals.

Hobbies

I like to run and bike -- I ran cross country and track in high school, but now I use it as a relaxing form of exercise! I enjoy baking and reading the latest American history novel; thanks to "Hamilton", I'm reading the biography that inspired the hit musical. I'm a big sports fan, too, especially college football and basketball.
