I am a NYS certified teacher in NYC who is passionate about seeing students succeed! I recently graduated from Colgate University with degrees in Biology (with an emphasis in ecology, evolution and climate change studies) and Philosophy. During my time at Colgate I worked for 3 years in a research lab, where I did field research in Costa Rica, The Adirondack forests of upstate NY. I also did intensive lab research in Costa Rica and with Colgate's Biology department. I am certified by NYS to teach Science in grades 7-12, and am currently a public school teacher in the Bronx. I am passionate about teaching, education and social justice and I believe everyone has a right to an equitable and holistic education. I can't wait to work with you soon!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that every student is different in that we all learn and receive information in different ways. That's what makes a classroom so fun and dynamic; when you have many students who all have a different perspective on a piece of information, brilliant content is always likely to follow. As a tutor, my goal will always be to find the way of learning that is best suited to you and make sure that you acquire the information in that way. That will help you best understand and ultimately master the material in front of you!
