I majored in anthropology while attending Oakton Community College and was on the high honor roll in all of my social science classes, which included cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, sociology, developmental psychology, intro to psychology, and archaeology. I won the very esteemed "English Student of the Year" award at Oakton for outstanding writing and English skills. I have also taken courses in astronomy, physics, biology and chemistry, and my tutoring methods with science include creative, hands on demonstrations to assist in student conceptualization and understanding. I do not believe copying texts or filling out worksheets give students the best chance at excelling; instead, I firmly believe in seminar-style discussion, fun brain games and exercises, mock debates, and most importantly making a student comfortable enough to ask whatever is on their mind.

Growing up as a special needs child myself, I seriously lacked connection to my educators until I reached college, and I truly believe that distance hindered my learning. I would always encourage exploration, hands-on activities, connecting concepts to real-life scenarios, fostering a student's voice and confidence, and mostly, I hope to evoke a passion I found inside of myself for learning and education in students struggling to find meaning in a more standardized education system. I am patient, excitable, and give great feedback. I also believe that any child at any point in their education can see amazing results once they have found a tutor that works with the child's individuality and life experience. I hope to broaden the horizons of otherwise bored or confused students and show them that learning is truly a thrill.
