I'm an Educational Studies graduate student who gets excited about helping other people learn. Between private tutoring and working at the academic writing center on my college campus, I have 2 years of tutoring experience, with 1 year of that being ADHD-specific.
While working at my college's Academic Writing Center, I helped students improve their writing for class assignments, scholarship and grant applications, and the occasional cover letter and resume. My approach to writing tutoring is not about editing students' grammar; instead, I help students identify their communication goals and then teach techniques for effectively meeting those goals.
In broader tutoring work, I help students develop their study skills in a way that suits their unique learning style, personality, and accommodation needs. There is no one right way to learn, so figuring out what works for you is often a process of throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. As a student with ADHD myself, I have honed my 'spaghetti throwing' process over my academic career to be systematic and reflexive. When trying a new study technique, I help students identify what about it specifically works well and where friction occurs. I then use this feedback to inform what I suggest trying next. Lather, rinse, repeat until eventually students have a toolkit full of study techniques that they can wield confidently for any assignment, paper, or test that comes their way.
I would love to work with any student who wants to build their study toolkit to work with their unique learning style and educational goals.

When I’m not working, you can find me crafting or diving headfirst into researching my latest hyperfixation - often at the same time! I’ll cross stitch while I watch a documentary or put on an audiobook while I sew. I love learning about LGBTQ+ history (ask me about the topic of my undergraduate honors thesis), neurodiversity (right now I’m specifically interested in autistic self advocacy), and whatever niche historical crafting content YouTube’s algorithm has (correctly) identified I might be interested in.
