Academics have always been a passion for me. I graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in History with Honors in 2015, and plan to go to back to school in the fall. I have spent the majority of my life so far engaged in rigorous academic environments, and am grateful for all the new perspectives and critical thinking skills I have gained through that background. However, I also understand the pressure and anxiety that occur on the path towards academic achievement. Standardized tests and GPAs are important, whether we want them to be or not. I have firsthand experience studying for the SAT and LSAT, and scary as they are, I know that those tests are learnable.
My teaching style is laid back and collaborative. My goal is to meet students where they are, and work together to break down material into its most basic parts. By breaking down the material together, we can see where the student's strengths lie, and which areas are causing trouble.
I am excited to work with students to meet their academic goals, and to recognize the personal gains they make along the way.
