Hi! I'm a 27 year old tutor with a Master's degree in cognitive psychology. My research was focused on computational modeling of the neural systems involved in procedural learning, so I also have a strong math and programming background. I was a physics minor in college and had intended to be a physics major until I found myself feeling more passionate about cognitive science; that physics background definitely informed the direction of my research and I still have a lot of love for the subject.
Ultimately I found myself feeling like research wasn't the path for me in the long run, but I always loved the time I spent teaching in graduate school which is what drew me to tutoring. I've worked one on one with students in a professional context during office hours as a TA, but I've also found myself helping out many a friend with math and physics throughout the years. Ideally, I'm here to help you make intimidating and confusing topics feel intuitive and easy to understand. Looking forward to working with you!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My aim is to enhance your understanding of underlying concepts. In other words, I'm not here to help you memorize something, I'm here to help you wrap your head around why it works the way it works.
