I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and graduated from The Hockaday School. I am currently finishing a degree in neuroscience at UT Dallas and I work in a neuroscience lab that focuses on learning and memory. I plan to apply to medical school shortly thereafter and specialize in pediatric and adolescent psychiatry. I am very familiar with the pressures and demands of preparing for and getting into college.
My experience with tutoring ranges from grade school to college. My experience with high school comes from me participating as a tutor in the AVID program. The AVID program is a college preparatory program made for students who have the potential to go to college, but perhaps need extra support to get there. I have received training from The Shelton School specifically for tutoring and working with students with ADD/ADHD and learning differences. Not only that, but I have my own personal experience with ADHD and dyslexia to draw from. I believe this enables me to be more patient and to find more ways to approach a subject with a student as well as easing some of the anxiety that may be adding to their difficulties with the subject. My most recent experience with tutoring/teaching involved being a TA for Neuropharmacology (a senior level neuroscience course at UT Dallas). I was responsible for running weekly review sessions and creating review materials for students as well as being available for their questions and providing one on one time.
Overall, I strive to not only help my students understand the material, but to conquer the anxiety and the stress the material may be causing them. I am here to be a support and their teacher.
