I recently earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Physiology and Biochemistry from the University of Oregon, where I also lead the ballroom dance and type 1 diabetes clubs for a number of years. I am currently working on earning my Medical Assistant certification and studying for the MCAT in anticipation of applying to medical school.
My day job is at RISE Services as a Direct Support Professional working with kids and adults with developmental disabilities to help them accomplish their personal goals. This is where I discovered my passion for working one-on-one with people to continuously push against perceived boundaries and live their best lives. Lessons and skills I have learned from coaching my amazing clients lend themselves extremely well to tutoring.
My teaching philosophy is that there are as many ways to learn as there are students. Learning how to teach each student in their own unique "learning language" is my favorite part of tutoring!
We study smart, using tools that make sense to their thought process, instead of studying traditionally long and hard using standard methods (textbook reading, anyone?) Watch the frustration and stress disappear by trying a tailor-made learning plan that we will build together!
