I have a BS in Business from Northeastern University and an MBA from University of Massachusetts-Boston. I teach Marketing at Bentley University, Clark University, and UMass-Boston.
I tutor subjects across the entire spectrum: sciences and math, Spanish, and also writing, English and social studies.
In my tutoring I like to utilize a practical learning style where we use real-life examples. Sometimes I include other forms of media in my teaching which makes it a lot more fun (and relevant).
Outside of academic I am a volunteer with various rare disease organizations in the Boston healthcare community. I am deeply committed to helping people with rare diseases.
