I have over five years of tutoring experience. I have worked with preschool through college ages in subjects including critical reading, essay writing, middle-school mathematics, biology, chemistry, and Spanish. My undergraduate degree is in biology, giving me the skills to help students who struggle in math and science. I recently received a juris doctor degree - I passed the Georgia bar exam in 2012 - so I also possess the years of writing practice needed to help students who struggle with English, reading, and writing.

I consider standardized test preparation my specialty. I have helped dozens of high schoolers get ready for the ACT and SAT. I have also worked with students preparing for the DAT, GRE and LSAT exams.

I believe in an individualized approach to tutoring, so I tailor a program to meet the needs of each of my students depending on their studying style, abilities, and tutoring needs. I also believe that with proper study habits, practice, and encouragement, any student can be nurtured to perform to the best of his or her ability.

I am very friendly and gregarious. I love to cook and I love being outdoors. Hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, surfing and kayaking are just a few of my favorites. In my spare time, I also enjoy reading, writing, and drawing, as well as playing the guitar and piano.
