I graduated with my Master's degree in Public Health in 2012 and as such, I've gone through rigorous schooling to achieve my goals. I hope to relay my passion for learning onto the students that I have the opportunity to tutor.

As an undergraduate and a high school student I was frequently called upon to be a volunteer tutor for a variety of age groups. These experiences have given me the ability to adapt my style according to the students I am working with to be a more effective tutor.

Each student I have worked with in the past would tell you that I leave them laughing, but ultimately learning the material they need to in order to succeed. I understand that each student has a unique learning style and interests, and in order for them to truly learn, these must be taken into account. When I first start working with a student I attempt to gain a better understanding of them as a student and determine why they are struggling or need help with the subject matter. By understanding this, I am better able to help them create a study plan and address their weaknesses so that they can achieve the goals they have set for themselves!

In the past I have mainly been a tutor in the biological sciences, primarily in anatomy, physiology, and general biology. In the past 2 years I have had the opportunity to work with several students on improving their English. I have assisted them with developing essays as well as improving grammar and reading skills. I have also engaged in editing and assisting my students in studying for exams such as the GRE (Graduate Record Examination)and SAT. I firmly believe that my experiences and past work have given me the insight necessary to be an excellent tutor and I look forward to working with you and your family!

Elementary (K-6th)

I recently graduated with my Master's degree in Public Health. For K-6 students my experience tutoring 6th graders and extensive education in English, science, and math are resources to assist children.


My undergraduate coursework required extensive focus on genetics beyond the basics, giving me the knowledge and expertise to guide others studying it. I have a Master's degree in Public Health .

Social Studies

My passion for history, continued desire to learn about current issues, and the world around us gives me the foundation to tutor in social studies. My undergraduate coursework included extensive classes on physical and cultural anthropology which allowed me to explore the history of humans as culture and language evolved as well as the adaptations during the shift from a hunter-gatherer society to modern industrialized society.
I also had coursework in political science, geology, geography, international studies, comparative studies, and took upper-level coursework in history. This educational experience and my own continued interest in civic engagement and culture are a resource for the students I work with in the subject of social studies.

Study Skills

I have gained experience in effective studying through years of education and assisting other students in time management, web-resource use, and gaining efficiency in the writing process.
