I am an all-ages tutor with over six years of experience. Most prominently, I’ve tutored in math (K thru Pre-Calc), science (K thru High School -- biology, psychology, chemistry, physics), and English (all ages and grade levels -- literature, composition. reading skills, writing, essay editing, etc). I deeply enjoy working with children and adolescents, and work consciously to target my level of interaction and explanation to many different ages. Years of experience as the oldest cousin on both sides of my family, has given me a fine-tuned ability to encourage and engage in age-appropriate playfulness and positivity, while maintaining a firm grasp on responsibility for the task at hand.

I love helping others learn, have a great deal of patience, a sharp editor's eye, and a treasure trove of study tricks and organizational tools. I have participated in multiple courses related to childhood learning and development and approaches to tutoring, and have a number of different approaches in my teaching tool-belt. Most often, I like to take an approach to teaching that focuses on deep understanding of the subject material. I seek to build a solid foundation for grasping the material, based upon each student’s particular background, interests, and approach to learning. I also really like to make learning fun! I think there are so many ways one can approach any subject, and spend a great deal of time trying to help my students figure out which approach may be most positive and exciting for them.

I graduated from Oberlin College in 2014, receiving a Neuroscience B.A. with High Honors, and worked for the past two years as a scientific researcher in a lab at Harvard University. I have been involved in scientific research for many years, and authored multiple publications. In addition to my technical work, I have worked as a research mentor for local high school students, taught an elective course on reading and analyzing scientific papers, and was employed by the Oberlin Dean of Students as a mentor for incoming freshman. As a result, I have a deep passion for explaining confusing and complicated concepts, and working to teach to the individual student’s needs and interests.

In addition to my scientific work, I have been heavily involved in writing for many years. In high school, I was the News Editor and Managing Editor of the school newspaper. During college, I wrote for multiple publications, and was a copy editor at the Oberlin Review, as well as a co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Oberlin’s popular science magazine. As a result, I have many years under my belt serving as a grammar and content editor -- which involves not only correcting others’ work, but working over long periods of time with writers to begin, create, and shape pieces of which they can be proud.
