University of Pennsylvania (History of Science)
University of Texas at Austin (Enrolled)
I am currently a PhD student in Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin's School of Information. While at UT, I have co-taught courses at the Master's level, including courses like Managing Information Organizations and Understanding Research. My experiences helping students work through problems--including homework assignments, projects and presentations, and test prep--have been the most fulfilling aspects of my time in graduate school. I hope to add to these experiences by tutoring younger students who are trying to maximize their educational outcomes.
I have over a year of experience tutoring high school students. While completing my undergraduate training at the University of Pennsylvania, I tutored high school students in West Philadelphia. This tutoring experience was coordinated by an on-campus student group. The most memorable experience I had at UPenn was helping a student with a science fair project on building sustainability. We worked together to help her move on from the West Philadelphia science fair to the city science fair, and eventually all the way to the state competition. The looks of pride and satisfaction she demonstrated at each point in the project motivated me to continue teaching.
I am qualified to tutor in any K-12 subject. I prefer working with students who would like help in the humanities (English or History, for example), but also enjoy teaching pre-algebra, algebra, biology, and chemistry.
I scored highly on both the SAT and GRE math tests, which test a student's ability up to about pre-calculus. In addition, I have taken several math courses (Calculus 1 and 2, statistics) at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
I pride myself on being a solid, straightforward writer. I have a strong grasp of writing mechanics and vocabulary. Additionally, I have published several research articles in highly-regarded conferences and journals during my time in graduate school.

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.
