I am beginning a PhD program in Learning Sciences at UIC. Prior to this, I worked with the education department at Shedd Aquarium, first as a program designer and implementer, then as a researcher studying trends in informal science learning.
My training as a tutor has taught me to focus on each client as an individual. No two people are alike. My job is to find out where the learner is currently and what he or she needs to make progress. I enjoy getting to know people and helping them achieve their goals, whatever those might be!
My tutoring experience began at Kaplan, a national leader in test preparation. I worked for Kaplan as an ACT tutor, and I was certified on all sections of the test: English, reading, writing, math, and science. Through WyzAnt, I have worked with students from elementary school to college on a variety of subjects.
I earned my undergraduate degree from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where I majored in biology and minored in psychology.
