I'm Heather, a Senior at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. As a tutor and writing center associate at my university, a writer for the student newspaper, a leader in multiple schoolwide organizations, and a 4.0 student, I know what I am tutoring on and am a competent, experienced tutor.

Additionally, as a student of Sociology/Women's and Gender Studies, I have learned about sensitivity training, group and social dynamics, and the ways our individual identities influence how we see the world and learn. Thus, I come to each session ready to center the student. Their experiences, learning styles, and likes/dislikes are what are most important to their success, and I do my utmost to personalize my tutoring style to fit what will work best for each student. I understand the unique difficulties that face shy or anxious students, as well as those who may be bored, unmotivated, disconnected, and so on. Let's work together to make studying relevant, accessible, and less of a chore!

In my free time I enjoy running, hiking, and generally exploring the beautiful backcountry of the Pacific Northwest. I like to read, cook new recipes, and get out in the sun as much as I can!
