As a Yale medical student and former journalist and researcher, my interests are varied and my curiosity is piqued by a plethora of subjects. I am voracious in my quest for new knowledge, and love helping others explore topics that interest them. More importantly, I am enthusiastic in developing methods in understanding and learning. As a tutor, I think it is important to attack material from multiple angles and perspectives. This helps me understand where holes in understanding are, and develops the skill set necessary for acing assessments and maintaining that knowledge for a lifetime.
Outside of academics, I am a yoga enthusiast and runner. I enjoy hiking with my 90 pound mutt named Huckleberry, who himself enjoys chasing deer and rolling in mud puddles. I am also an avid painter, mostly in acrylics and watercolor.

Q & A

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Learning can be done through reading, writing, dancing, and viewing. Learning how to relate subject matter across disciplines to something you love is the way to make education a joy instead of a chore.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Figuring out how you learn is the most important part to staying motivated; some people need to find calm and quiet and work for hours, and then put things aside and relax. If you need short spurts of work with dance breaks, that's what we'll do!

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

Confidence in subject material can be gained by recognizing how much you already know. By reviewing material we've mastered together, we can come to see how capable you are as a student.
