Bio

Looking for help in Math and English? I can help with both! Having spent the past 8 years tutoring students grades 3-12 in Math (Pre-Calculus and below), all levels of English, American History, Science (ICP, Biology, and below), and SAT/ACT Test Prep, I am comfortable serving as both a specialty and all-purpose tutor. My greatest skill (and joy!) is making complex concepts clear and accessible to frustrated students.

Looking for help in Math and English? I can help with both! Having spent the past 8 years tutoring students grades 3-12 in Math (Pre-Calculus and below), all levels of English, American History, Science (ICP, Biology, and below), and SAT/ACT Test Prep, I am comfortable serving as both a specialty and all-purpose tutor. My greatest skill (and joy!) is making complex concepts clear and accessible to frustrated students.

I come equipped with a B.A. in English and Cinema from the University of Iowa and a Masters in Media Arts from Dallas Theological Seminary. Through my own academic struggles, I can empathize with the frustrations and fears of the students I tutor. Middle school and high school can be both demanding and overwhelming, but clear guidance and heartfelt encouragement can turn those difficult experiences into sources of great joy and confidence. I look forward to facilitating that turn-around for you!

Please contact me to schedule a session today! If you would like more information regarding the nature of sessions or references from past clients, please let me know as well. Thank you!
