Hello! I am a graduate of Colgate University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. At Colgate, I was involved in the Hamilton Central School Tutoring Program, through which I was responsible for team tutoring 10 elementary-aged students in French on a weekly basis. After graduation, I worked at Hanover Research in Washington, D.C., where I worked to support student achievement by conducting primary and secondary research for school districts across the country.

Currently, I am a first-year PhD student in School Psychology at Fordham University's Graduate School of Education. In the future, I look forward to working with middle and high school aged students as a school psychologist. Outside of work and school, I enjoy traveling, baking, and reading.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

As a psychology major and current psychology grad student, I believe in the importance of getting to know students at a personal level and then trying to figure out the tutoring strategy that will relate to them in the most effective way. I am also a proponent of technology and multimedia tools, such as video presentations. I think that these hands-on approaches often draw students in and make them more interested than they would be just staring at a textbook. Finally, I believe in the importance of requesting feedback from students regularly - I want to make sure that students' preferred learning styles are being addressed and that we make full use of the time we have together.

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

In a typical first session, I would first engage the student in a conversation about what he/she hopes to get out of our tutoring sessions. I would aim to explore specific areas he or she would like to focus on in order to develop a plan going forward.
