I graduated summa cum laude from Boston University in 2013, and have been working close to full time as a tutor ever since. My major was in biology, but I find most of my students these days in math. I am happy to work with anyone from middle school through college, including adult learners and children with special needs — I have experience with students of all backgrounds and learning styles.

While at Boston University, I worked for two years as a peer tutor at the Educational Resource Center. Until my move to Seattle, I had been working as a tutor at the Math Learning Center of Prince George's Community College, near Washington DC. In these structured settings I gained a good deal of formal training, experience, and range with respect to the types of students I have worked with. My success at each job has always been founded in enthusiasm for my subjects, patience, and commitment to understanding the specific needs of my students.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or to arrange for tutoring. I look forward to meeting you!

Physics

I have worked as a tutor for students in AP high school physics for two years. I took two semesters of calculus-based physics at Boston University, receiving high marks.

####
Precalculus

I earned an 800 on the mathematics SAT II, as well as a 5 on the calculus BC AP exam. I continued on to take several advanced math courses in college. I have tutored middle and high school math for over a year.

####
Genetics

I graduated from Boston University with a B.A. in Biology; this required that I complete a genetics requirement. I did this by taking two genetics classes during my semester abroad at University College London; Introduction to Genetics and Genetic Systems & Models. Additionally, I took further courses at Boston University that assumed detailed knowledge of genetics, including Evolution and Animal Behavior.
