I am a student at Northwestern University working towards a Bachelors degree in Economics. I have tutored high school and middle school students extensively in a variety of subjects, and specialize in test prep including SAT and AP testing, as well as middle school and high school math. My favorite subject to teach is any kind of test prep because its easy to track how quickly a student is learning, and helps me adjust my teaching style to be most effective for each individual student.
My teaching philosophy is that every student is completely unique, and it is my job to adapt my teaching to help them learn at their full potential. Seeing a student's eyes light up when a problem finally clicks is the most rewarding moment for me.
I love traveling, reading, exploring the outdoors, and any activity at the beach.
