I am an enthusiastic educator with more than 8 years of tutoring, teaching, and mentoring experience. I work with students in grades Pre-K to adult in a wide range of subjects. I have a bachelor's degree from Skidmore College and am pursuing a master's degree from the University for Peace.

I am a passionate educator who uses my strong senses of empathy and creativity to personalize learning for each of my students. I strongly believe in the importance of building confidence and mutual respect in conjunction with meaningful teaching to see students truly excel. I enthusiastically cater to each individual and their needs, and I am intentional in both observing students as well as learning with them. I have the patience and understanding to work with students from all backgrounds, and I am especially motivated to help those who are struggling for reasons out of their own control. I utilize problem-solving skills, research, and creativity to understand the strengths and areas for improvement in my students so that each one can thrive in a way that embraces their individuality.

Success story:

One of my most rewarding success stories is the work I did with a high school student in math and Spanish. He was navigating a learning disability, was incredibly skeptical of tutoring, and had lost a lot of trust in education and confidence in himself. I met him where he was, adjusted to his needs, and after just a few months of tutoring, his final grades were released and his parents called me in shock. All his grades had improved, even in subjects we did not directly work on, and his GPA skyrocketed. All he needed was for someone to boost his confidence and to help him see himself as a bright and capable learner.

Hobbies and interests:

Some of my hobbies and interests include horseback riding, animals, travel, music, dance, sports, politics/law/government, and anything outdoors.
