As a certified science, math and special education teacher, I enjoy working with students on a daily basis. I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Genetics as well as with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. My Master's degree is from the Warner School of Education in Inclusive Adolescent Science Education.

My experience includes over 7 years of tutoring and/or teaching. I have helped students achieve success in every subject from Biology to Calculus, including the SATs/ACTs. I tutor students of all ages, including middle school and college level. My students appreciate my individualized attention and willingness to work with them in almost any subject area. During our sessions, I strive to make sure that students understand concepts they are struggling with. I am patient and willing to review ideas in multiple ways in order to help students understand them. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and would love the opportunity to work with you!
