I'm excited to tutor with Varsity Tutors. I recently received my Masters in Biology and have an extensive background in animal biology research and teaching. I have traveled internationally, helping with animal behavior research, and I enjoy learning about new cultures and languages.

I believe that students learn best when they have the tools to actively engage with the subject at hand. To that end, I facilitate UNDERSTANDING of the subjects I tutor. Once students understand the core principles of biology/history/literature as a discipline, then remembering important information becomes easier. The student can move past memorization and begin to apply these principles to think like a true scientist/historian/writer. They become capable of identifying and engaging with increasingly complex issues in the discipline, enabling them to move beyond studenthood and become truly capable professionals.

In my personal time, I am also a voracious reader and history enthusiast.
