I have a BA in economics from Pomona College with minors in mathematics and music. After college, I was a non-degree, special student at Harvard University for two years where I retook several economics and mathematics classes through the Research Scholar Initiative to better prepare myself for graduate school. I've since been working on my master's degree in economics at Michigan State University. Throughout college and graduate school, I tutored elementary school children in English, math, and music, a middle school student in algebra, high school students in personal finance, and college students in microeconomics and macroeconomics. I am most passionate when tutoring students in mathematics because, regardless of your field of study, math has a funny way of popping up in whatever you do. As someone who has been the worst and best student in many classes, I understand that low performing students are NOT dumb or lazy and that a stellar tutor can make a big difference. In my free time, I like to sing in my church choir and exercise.
