I have always had a passion for helping students learn, with seven years of experience. I have worked as a tutor, teaching assistant, and guest teacher, most recently developing Ecology curriculum for an education non-profit.
In college, I studied Science (Organismal Biology, more specifically), and have a strong background in English. I worked as a scientist for several years, and can to connect textbook concepts to real, exciting experiences. I love making the material come to life for my students!
I have worked with students of all ages, from elementary school to college. I’ve taught both Science and English, including as a second language. I am able to break complicated concepts down into simple and understandable explanations. I have had success working with students who are “challenging” or easily distracted.
I look forward to helping you reach your full potential as a learner!

During the first meeting, I learn about the student's goals, learning process, and what they need help with most. This includes reviewing their past assignments and syllabi. I also like to have an individual discussion with the parent(s) about their child’s learning and how I can best support them.
Next, I create a plan for the rest of the semester to meet both short-term and long-term goals. Along with the student and parent(s), I map out any large assignments or exams on a calendar, and create a schedule. Throughout the semester, we will re-evaluate goals and modify the learning strategies as needed, which includes regular check-ins with the parent(s).
