I am a New York native and a recent college graduate from Amherst College. I majored in Anthropology and Pre-Medicine. I am currently on the path to medical school. I've always believed in sharing the gift of knowledge which is one reason why I enjoy tutoring. Why not pay it forward? Math has always been my favorite subject, but also one of the hardest subjects to grasp. I am here to help anyone to the best of my ability achieve their goals in school, their careers, or in life in general and become confident in their abilities. If you have any questions regarding anything, feel free to ask me! I am an open book and I am here for you and for your success!

When I am not working or tutoring I am dancing, playing volleyball, playing archery, or traveling.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Every student is unique in the way that they learn and understand concepts. It is important to adapt to every student to allow for the best outcome possible of grasping material. I teach in many different ways to foster a personal growth in each and every one of my students. They will be confident in the material; it just takes patience and flexibility.

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

Introduce myself. Figure out what they struggle with and why. Learn their study habits, way of learning and understanding concepts. Figure out what teaching style best suits them. Work with them until they feel confident in themselves and the material to recite the information back to me.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would incorporate some of their personal interests into the material we are going over. This allows for the student to stay engaged while still learning. I would also introduce many different teaching styles into the lesson to keep them interested in what truly needs to be learned.
