I have been working with learners of a variety of ages and educational backgrounds since I was 16. I have the greatest amount of experience with lower and upper elementary, but I have tutored students ranging from 1st grade through adult learners returning to college after several years in the workforce. From 2013-2014, I worked as an Instructor at my local Mathnasium tutoring center and split my time fairly evenly between providing homework help and teaching students using Mathnasium's curriculum. Since then, I have worked as an instructional assistant at Chrysalis Academy, a school for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. During the summers I have worked there I have primarily taught children ages 6-12 using a modified curriculum to suit each student's needs.

I am currently a Junior at the University of Texas at Dallas studying Psychology and Neuroscience. I hope to attend graduate school and pursue a career in researching behavioral intervention methods for young children with autism. I am passionate about ensuring that every child can is given the opportunity to achieve success in education and all areas of life. In my free time, I help run an on-campus organization that raises funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Pediatric Cancer Research (ALSF). Working with ALSF allows me to create unique events on my campus and support a charity that empowers children and families who face often unimaginable circumstances.

I am excited to tutor with Varsity Tutors and provide students with a resource to aid in their education. Since I am currently in school and recently took the GRE, I understand the challenges many students face in completing homework and preparing for standardized tests. I look forward to helping students learn and enjoy the subjects which they are studying.
