I enjoy working one-on-one with students to help them meet their academic goals. I have experience working with 1st through 11th grade students in math, science, and English. From 2008-2009 I taught high school biology in Kenya, Africa through a program called Young Adults in Global Mission.

I like to discuss with the student to see what he/she would like to improve on, then set some goals and decide how we are going to assess if the goals are met. I ask the student how he/she learns the best, and I am always open to answering questions.
