I graduated from University of Cincinnati in 2020 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology. I did research my senior year at University of Cincinnati in the Neuroscience Lab studying animal navigation systems, optokinetics, and spatial orientation. I am currently in Graduate School at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs working on a Master's of Science degree in Neuroscience. I am doing post-baccalaureate research on behavioral psychology, more specifically the psychology behind lying, power, and deception. I absolutely love tutoring! I have tutored a girl with Tourette's Syndrome and anxiety, and she improved her score on the ACT by 10 points. She is now going to her dream school!

I am a strong mental health advocate. I love to tutor General Science (from elementary to graduate school level), AP Biology, Psychology, ACT (all subjects), GED science, Anatomy and Physiology (Human Comparative Anatomy), Neurobiology, Neuroscience, Plant Biology, and Writing. Of course, my favorite subject is Biology because that is what I spent my undergraduate degree studying!

In the beginning of my college career, I had to learn how to take exams all over again. I did not have to study a lot in High School, so when college hit, I had to teach myself how to study! I quickly realized that I am a visual learner. I learn best if I can draw it out or picture the scenario. For example, when I learned about Mitosis & Meiosis and it came time to study for the test, I would draw out each step with different colors. Eventually, after coming up with silly tricks and multiple visual representations, I became an expert!

I think what makes me stand out as a tutor is that I am 23 years old, and I am still in school. I completely empathize with the students in school that are struggling. I have been there, and I'm sure I will be there in the near future when I enter into new classes this fall! My philosophy is that it is okay to be wrong. Learning is not a linear process. It's frustrating and difficult at times, but it is also rewarding and worth it. I had a professor who told the class he prefers that everyone is wrong the first time because after that first time, you'll never forget the right answer. I absolutely love that idea. It relieves the pressure on the student to be right every single time!

Now, when I'm not learning and teaching, I am tending to my 3 hermit crabs & a dog named Mia. I love hiking and being outside in the sun.

Lastly, I truly believe that having a sense of humor and learning how to not be embarrassed when you get the answer wrong is key in the learning process. Let's get some answers wrong, study in a fun/colorful/effective way, and chase those dreams.
