Kansas City Tutoring And Mentoring
I'm an upbeat and patient professional currently pursuing a PhD in Biology. I began my undergraduate education at Columbia University in NYC and earned a BS in Molecular Biology, graduating magna cum laude.
I have more than three years of experience teaching math, English, science, and SAT/ACT prep to students of all ages and learning abilities (incuding students with ADHD, dysgraphia, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities).
I also offer academic management services. Many parents find the shift to online/at-home education difficult. I can help students succeed by tracking their performance and developing individualized learning plans.
I love helping students understanding challenging material! Finding creative ways to explain ideas and spark learning is deeply fulfilling to me. I am invested in this work because of the way that achieving academic success can improve students' self-confidence and chances for success in their future careers!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I typically spend the first session or two probing the student's knowledge to get a sense of how well they understand the material and to identify any areas where remediation might be helpful. I also believe that it's critical to establish a good personal relationship with each of my clients, so I devote some time to getting to know each other and making sure we're a good fit!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology and am currently pursuing a PhD in Biology at the University of Kansas.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
For students needing 1-2 hour long sessions per week, I charge $35/session. Students needing more than 1-2 sessions per week will receive a discounted rate, depending on how many times per week they need to meet.
How did you get started teaching?
I got my first teaching job somewhat by accident! A close friend from college spent every summer teaching SAT prep at a private academy in Seoul, South Korea. I was looking for a summer job and an adventure, so I applied and was hired. I discovered that I had a passion for helping students understand difficult material. I have continued to teach because I love helping students improve their academic performance, which has a profound effect on their ability to be successful in their future careers.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students of all ages and learning abilities. I have tutored students in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college (including adults in their 40s returning to college). I also have experience working with students with ADHD and learning disabilities.
