Knox College (Comp Sci, Envs)
I graduated cum laude from Knox college this June, with a double major in computer science and environmental studies. Now I am participating in a post-baccalaureate fellowship with the college, so that I can assist with Green Oaks term, Knox's off campus intentional living immersive trimester in the spring. This means I am still taking classes and serving as a teacher's assistant.
I have always loved learning and teaching, from growing up in a small college town and having educators for parents. During high school I worked as an information technology assistant for my whole school district, helping teachers and students learn about computers as we got new technologies that required training. I came into college thinking I would become a professor later in life, so I have taken many opportunities to TA for classes work individually with students to help them learn material, and I pay attention to how different students learn so I can figure out what I need to do to help them better.
I have taken introductory science courses in all the major disciplines, though I eventually focused most on environmental studies and ecology. I have a solid understanding and ability to explain how scientific systems work, as I enjoy many academic conversations outside of class.
Studying at a liberal arts school has given me the opportunity to practice writing in different styles and forms, as I have written for many science and humanities classes. I have seen how my writing has improved throughout my time in college, and would love to help others through that same journey.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
