I am a sophomore at Vanderbilt University in the College of Arts and Sciences, and I hope to graduate with bachelor's degrees in chemistry and English.
I like to work with motivated students. I understand that, while test scores are an insufficient measure of a student's capability, high test scores can open a lot of doors in the college application process, and I want to see those doors open for my students. As I understand it, the best way to improve test scores is to do as many practice problems as possible. However, in standardized-test-taking there are many ways to work smarter, not harder. I like to work with students on pattern recognition and breaking down problems to their smallest component parts to make each problem more intuitive than the last.

I like butchering folk and bluegrass songs (and the occasional original) on the guitar, looking at cars I can't afford on Craigslist, and catching up with my many siblings.
