Hello Students!

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I did 3 years of neuroscience research at my university, studying the molecular physiology of epilepsy, autism-spectrum disorders, and Alzheimer's Disease. I also served as a General Chemistry TA, where I led discussion sections of 20-30 students each semester. I am proud to have been featured on UIUC's published list of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students for three semesters! While I tutor a wide range of subjects, I am most passionate about Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology. I am also skilled in preparing students for college entrance exams (ACT and SAT) and Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

I'd like to say that I have never struggled in school, but that is simply not the case. I know very well the struggle and frustration with receiving bad marks no matter how much effort I put in. I felt myself the anxiety surrounding standardized testing, especially before and during the ACT, SAT, and 10 AP exams I took as a high school student. It was through these less-than-pleasant experiences, though, that I sought out mentors and adopted strategies over the years that have not only led me to success on standardized tests, but sustainable academic success. My teaching philosophy centers much upon identifying learning styles, accountability, resilience, and growth, as I have found these themes to be paramount to my own academic success. As a teacher/mentor I hope to encourage and empower my students with personalized strategies that will last, rather than try to direct them to arbitrary scores.
