A recent graduate of Carleton College with a B.A. in economics, I am currently pursuing my M.S. in Geographic Information Science at Saint Mary's University. As a tutor in numerous subjects, my love for lifelong learning and intellectual growth has inspired me to assist others not only in understanding concepts, but finding ways to enjoy thinking about them as well. Furthermore, doing well in school can be a big boost to one's confidence, and I love seeing the benefits of such among my students.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that students learn best not by rote memorization, but rather by genuine understanding of why something is and how to apply that information to things beyond the fact itself.
