I am an experienced tutor with degrees in Psychology and Public Policy, and a certificate in Applied Statistics. As a tutor of 3 years, I’ve enhanced my students’ comfort with statistics, revitalized their writing skills, and elevated my students’ knowledge of psychology.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Penn State, where I graduated first in my program. Immediately following my graduation from college, I attended Duke University for my Master’s in Public Policy, one of only six individuals in my cohort to do so. I further augmented my experience and knowledge in statistics later, receiving my Certificate in Applied Statistics from North Carolina State University.

Helping you (or your son or daughter) increase their understanding and succeed in their work is why I tutor. Nothing is more fulfilling as a tutor than when working with someone and seeing them experience that “ah ha” moment in our sessions.

Government & Politics

Government & Politics was a favorite course of mine during highschool. I performed very well and felt I learned a lot in the course. As a result, I developed a great passion for this topic and minored in it for my undergraduate degree at Penn State University and for my graduate at Duke University. My passion in this topic is very useful in working with students and helping them succeed in this very interesting topic.
Political Science,

Political Science

During my undergraduate education I minored in political science and completed coursework in Comparative Politics, American Government, and Political Theory. I applied this knowledge as a Research Assistant on two major political science projects, a survey of international law, with results presented at the International Law Association and American Society of International Law conference in 2014, and the Comprehensive Statistical Database of Multilateral Treaties. I focused my honors thesis on the psychology of political decisions, using the Scottish Referendum in 2014 as a case study. I also completed a Master's in Public Policy that build upon this knowledge of the policy process.
