I am a current sophomore pursuing a degree in Biology from Brown University, as well as a certificate in Hispanic Studies. I love to help others find the joy in learning, and have tutored high school students in math, Spanish, biology, and chemistry for three years. I also have coordinated and staffed a free summer camp for under-resourced children in my area, focusing on environmental and natural sciences, so I am highly experienced in producing engaging and interactive lessons for a wide range of ages. My lab internships at Duke University, Brown University, and UNC-Chapel Hill, as well as college coursework, have further amplified my interest in biology and chemistry. Additionally, I work as a volunteer medical interpreter at Clnica Esperanza in Rhode Island, and conduct administrative and check-in procedures with Spanish-speaking patients. This opportunity, as well as the upper-level Spanish culture and literature courses I have taken at Brown, have honed my fluency in the language, and I would love to help you develop strong Spanish reading, writing, and conversational abilities. I also have taken a multitude of standardized tests, including AP, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests, and offer test preparation in these areas. Generally, my tutoring style focuses on developing effective thought processes over memorization, so that students are able to apply and enjoy what they learn. Outside of academia, I play the saxophone and piano, and prior experience with tutoring middle-school woodwind students has prepared me for additional tutoring work. I love the outdoors, and hike, bike, and kayak whenever I can! I'm also an avid reader, and enjoy attempting new culinary creations.

Hobbies

I love playing saxophone, clarinet, and piano, and enjoy playing chamber music with my friends and family. If it's not frigid or raining heavily, you can always find me outside with a glass of sweet tea, about to go for a run, bike ride, hike, or swim. At Brown, I am a board member of the Outing Club and organize low/no-cost outdoor adventures for the student body. When I'm home, I play an enormous amount of Frisbee with my younger brothers!
