I graduated from the University of Vermont with PhD in Mathematical Sciences in May 2018, where I taught college level Calculus and gen ed mathematics courses for liberal arts majors. Since then, I have worked as an industry analyst, applying mathematics to problems in IT, database design and structure, and risk analysis. I still love to work with students, and enjoy tutoring both one-off sessions as well as working with students regularly throughout a semester, course, or college career.

I graduated from the University of Vermont with PhD in Mathematical Sciences in May 2018, where I taught college level Calculus and gen ed mathematics courses for liberal arts majors. Since then, I have worked as an industry analyst, applying mathematics to problems in IT, database design and structure, and risk analysis. I still love to work with students, and enjoy tutoring both one-off sessions as well as working with students regularly throughout a semester, course, or college career.
I have tutored and taught throughout my academic career. I strongly believe that all students can be successful in mathematics, and take pride in each student I have been able to help succeed.
In college, I was employed for three years by the Mathematics Tutoring Center, a walk-in center to help students in courses from College Algebra through Calculus 3. In addition to this experience, I spent a year working for a program matching first-generation and minority college students with ongoing one-on-one tutors. I also tutored privately throughout my graduate school career. In addition to my tutoring experience, I was the sole instructor for four undergraduate courses at UVM with full responsibilities for planning the courses, giving lectures, and grading. These include calculus courses and courses in finite mathematics. Having experienced the faculty/instructor side of the equation personally, I am well-suited to helping students navigating college-level math courses.
I began my undergraduate studies as a music performance major at the Crane School of Music, and I began studying mathematics in college having not done any math since completing Algebra 2 in high-school. Starting math after such a long break and without many of the expected prerequisites (like geometry and trigonometry) was challenging, and the experience of overcoming those challenges to get my degrees gives me valuable insight into helping students with varied backgrounds in math do the same.
One of the most important aspects of tutoring is finding a tutor who fits well with you, so feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up a first session! I am frequently online and respond promptly to any queries.
