I just thought I'd post a bit about myself and my family to give you a bit more information. My husband and I met in graduate school in Oklahoma and were married in 2009. After a year in remote Western Nebraska, we moved to Missouri to be closer to family.
Having settled in Rolla, we became licensed foster parents and started our own family which up to that point just included a stray dog, Casey, that we had adopted. In May 2012, we welcomed our twins, Henry & Rachel to the world. Things were a bit crazy
for awhile since they arrived 3 months early but today they are happy & healthy 19-month old toddlers and enjoy exploring the world around them.
We moved to Jefferson City in the fall of 2013 to be closer to my husbands work (the Missouri National Guard). So far we have enjoyed our time in Jefferson City. I can't wait until the weather will cooperate so we can take more walks at Runge Nature Center!
I'm going to write in this blog everyday. That is my first goal.

My dog's name is Princess Tigerlily, but we just call her Lily. She lives up to her full name though.
I look forward to tutoring you soon.

became increasingly enjoyable. My tutor's support allowed me to gain confidence when approaching new topics and tenacity when solving complex problems. I took AP Chemistry my Junior year, earned a 5 on the AP exam, and a perfect 800 on the Chemistry SAT. I
want to be a tutor in order to inspire high school students, especially those who are struggling with chemistry, biology, and mathematics classes; all students have the potential to succeed in these challenging subjects. It's just a matter of putting in a
consistent effort with the proper guidance, and I feel privileged to be a tutor who can offer such support.
I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from UC Davis in 2006 with a Departmental Honor Award and a Dean's...
