Outstanding Tutor: I have over five years of teaching and tutoring experience.

I recently graduated from the University of Chicago with a master’s degree in physics as all but dissertation and a second master's degree in astronomy & astrophysics. An Indiana native, I graduated with highest distinction and Phi Beta Kappa from Purdue University, where I double majored in honors physics and mathematics with a minor in psychology. I also took five quarters of collegiate French classes and eleven years of piano lessons plus three years of jazz band.

As a teaching assistant, I led discussion and lab sections for courses which have run the gamut from introductory physics and astronomy sequences to mathematical methods and mechanics courses to special topics courses on black holes and gravitational waves. During office hours, I worked one-on-one with myriad students to clarify conceptual questions and to hone problem-solving strategies.

This past summer, I helped a deaf student overcome communication barriers to mastering material in trigonometry and college algebra. I also tutored underrepresented students in the sciences through the Women in Science Program at Purdue University for two and a half years and the College Core Tutor Program at the University of Chicago for one year.

Ballroom Dancing

I took one year of ballroom dancing lessons and two additional years of swing dancing lessons. I also competed at four collegiate competitions in Newcomer and Bronze, making it to semi-finals several times and finals twice. I would feel comfortable teaching basic waltz, tango, foxtrot, swing, cha cha, and rumba.
