EducationI got my B.A. in Mathematics with minors in neuroscience and nutrition from the University of Maine in 2007. From there, I went on to get an M.S. in Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010. My obtaining my master's degree, I completed research focusing on applications of math to the studying of neuroscience. I also worked as a teach assistant during that time and led calculus class recitations. I've always loved studying and teaching math!
ExperienceI have been tutoring students in subjects ranging from pre-algebra to calculus since 2013. Many of my students have reported improving their class grades by a full letter grade or more.
I have also successfully helped students prepare for standardized tests such as the GRE, PRAXIS, SAT, and ACT. I recently took the GRE myself and scored 170 on both the quantitative and verbal sections of the test.
I understand that every student is unique, and we all face different challenges when we study math. Because of this, I adapt my tutoring style and content to meet each student's individual needs. I will meet you at you current level of understanding of the subject and help you build from there to gain knowledge and confidence in math. I love that moment when students start to move from frustration to confidence!
HobbiesI recently moved to the Seattle area from New Jersey. I'm loving all of the opportunities in the Pacific Northwest for outdoor recreation! In the summer I like to take advantage of the abundant sunshine as much as I can, and am usually in the mountains hiking on the weekends. I also enjoy cooking and spending time with family and friends.
