I first began tutoring during my sophomore year at Umass Dartmouth. I had always enjoyed helping my friends with their more difficult subjects and thought it was a logical step to make that passion into a job. For two years now, I have tutored students in math, physics, English and programming at the university. When I return to the university this fall for my masters program, I will continue to tutor and enjoy helping my peers find their academic success.
Outside of tutoring, I have competitively swam for going on 16 years and am currently the captain of our university's NCAA swim team. As well, I enjoy hiking, running, reading, working out, going to the movies and astronomy. I have a methodology that no student, no matter how much they may be struggling, is unteachable. I had three peers fail calculus their first semester, own that fact and come to the tutoring center for help the following semester. After working with them, all passed calculus this past spring term with no lower than a B+. Teaching is a passion for me and I look forward to sharing that passion with you in the pursuit of your academic success.
