I am a recent graduate of the University of Kentucky with a Master of Science in Animal Nutrition. I received my Bachelor of Science in Animal Sciences from Cornell University. While I tutor various subjects, I am most passionate about tutoring math and feel that our school systems often fail students when it comes to math. I do not believe that some people simply "can't do math." I believe that some may need extra time and help, but everyone can do math. With patience and hard work, any student can learn. I also enjoy tutoring Spanish, which I have studied since I was in elementary. During undergrad, I even studied abroad in Barcelona and lived with a host family. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, dancing, TV/movies, and knitting.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Patience and practice! I try first to understand what the student doesn't understand ,and then approaching the topic from various angles until we find a certain technique that works best for the student.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a typical first session, I would focus on assessing the student, finding out what they know and what they need to spend a little more time on.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

It is important that students understand both how to do the problem and the concepts behind them. I try to teach students how to reason through problems using what they know to draw conclusions.
