I am a graduate of Augustana College with a Bachelor of Arts in Geology and Environmental Studies with a minor in Mathematics. While at my undergrad, I often worked with elementary and middle school students, teaching basic science concepts and attempting to inspire and interest in all types of science and learning. I achieved my Master of Science degree in Geosciences with a concentration in Paleontology from East Tennessee State University. My research focused on Ice Age mammoth dynamics and paleobiological patterns. After my Master's I worked with the National Park Service in Alaska backpacking across remote national parks including Katmai, Bering Land Bridge, and Kobuk Valley completing field work and reports for the park service. I tutor a wide variety of subjects and am most passionate about natural sciences, math, and ArcGIS. I've always enjoyed prepping for standardized tests (ACT, GRE) and hope to help all my students reach score beyond their targets. I believe there is no single correct way to go about learning and I strive to uncover the methods that work best for each student. I enjoy teaching students of all ages, and my methods are tailored to the age and level of each student. Outside of academia, I love photography, playing basketball, and watching movies/TV shows (big Marvel fan).

I'm an avid wildlife/nature photographer and am always looking for special moments to captures outdoors. I enjoy working out and playing sports, binge watching TV shows, and playing video games. I plan and go on road trips as often as I can. My academic interests include environmental studies, paleontology (particularly the Pleistocene, aka the "Ice Age"), and zoology/wildlife ecology.
