I am so happy to be a tutor with Varsity Tutors. Lifelong learning is a value I hold very dear. I received my degree 20 years ago, but I personally have never stopped enriching my life through education; whether it be through music, speaking foreign languages, or studying any topic I want to pursue. I look forward to helping you reach your educational goals in a fun and engaging way!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe in working very hard but also having fun doing it. I help the student do both, and help him or her organize and prioritize their learning objectives. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step."
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First get to know each other in order to get comfortable. Then we will do an overview of the subject matter and student's goals in order to make a plan that works best for the student.
