As a graduate of Oberlin College, where I studied English and Ancient Latin, my passion for education is strongly tied to my commitment to social service. I believe deeply in the power of education to create positive change in our communities and in the world. To this end, I work daily to improve my craft and am always learning new strategies to support students. Despite my background in the humanities, tutoring math is my greatest pleasure. Because I myself discovered the joys of math a little later in life, I am familiar with the frustration and anxiety many students face in their math classes I've been there myself! It is a pleasure to help students discover their own appreciation of the subject and I have found that the confidence they gain impacts the rest of their studies, as well.

I am uniquely qualified to work with your child due to my experience in multiple facets of youth work. I have been tutoring for a decade and have worked with students of all ages and in a variety of subjects, with a strong focus on K-12 mathematics. As the Tutoring Coordinator at Oberlin Community Services, I trained, supervised, and placed K-12 math tutors in local schools. I have worked full-time as an Algebra and Geometry tutor in Chicago Public Schools. I also worked as a supervisor at the National Runaway Safeline to support volunteers in providing trauma-informed services to runaway and homeless youth; I believe that it is imperative for every educator to learn trauma-informed practices in order to serve the whole child. Most recently, I worked as a 4th grade classroom teacher through Teach for America New Mexico. My approach to tutoring reflects my diverse background: my lessons are student-centered rather than tutor-centered. I aim to speak as little as possible and allow students to build upon their own prior knowledge while making connections to new information. Because I have worked with students as young as five years old and as old as forty years old, I have a dynamic persona and am fairly adaptable to different

ADHD

I myself have ADHD, which went undiagnosed into my adulthood. As a result, I understand ADHD "traps" that students may fall into and provide strategies to best tackle academics.
