I am currently serving as a Teaching/Graduate/Research Assistant at a major research university in Kentucky while pursuing my Ph.D in Astrophysics. Every semester I teach and/or grade for undergraduate physics and astronomy courses while performing various research tasks under my advisor in Radio Astronomy. Alongside my graduate student duties I served as a physics and mathematics tutor for my university's Center for Academic Resources and Enrichment Services (CARES). Before attending graduate school, I tutored for the Tutorial and Academic Enhancement Center (TAEC) at a major university in Louisiana for four years; while completing my B.S. in Mathematics. At CARES and the TAEC, I tutored math courses up to linear algebra, as well as physics I and II. At the end of my undergraduate career I received my CRLA Master Tutor certification. During the summer months I have worked as a Child-Care Provider for children 2-4 years old for the Mother's Day Out Program at my local church in Texas and in our on campus optical observatory teaching the general public about Astronomy. In addition to my many tutoring and teaching positions, I have served as a private tutor from 2011-2017.

Outside of school I enjoy various outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, and soccer. During my undergraduate career I played Division I NCAA Women's Soccer. I also enjoy spending time with my family in Texas and taking part in various church activities.

I am enthusiastic about tutoring and learning!

I have played soccer for 18 years. Within those 18 years, I was apart of my high school's Varsity soccer team, my clubs National Premiere League team and Olympic Development team. I was recruited to play NCAA Division I women's soccer at Nicholls State University, where I broke the record for minutes played in a single season. During my time at Nicholls I had the opportunity to coach for the VooDoo Soccer Academy, where my teammates and I coached kids of different age groups after school. I also had the opportunity to give private lessons during the summer.
