I enjoy tutoring because I value seeing students set goals, succeed, and, most importantly, gain confidence in themselves. I have worked both with students who are struggling to grasp material or develop effective study skills and students who want to go above and beyond what is expected of the average student. I enjoy working one-on-one to form personal relationships and to best determine what is the most effective way for the student to learn. I desire to be a friend and mentor to students, and to create an encouraging, nurturing environment that evokes excitement in learning.
**Oaks Christian students must request me as a tutor through the Oaks Christian tutoring program, for which the cost is higher. Please call (818) 575-9291 to set up a session.
|Hobbies:|| I love being outdoors! My hobbies include SCUBA diving, snowboarding, skiing, hiking, running, and playing tennis. I also oil paint and play guitar.
I am primarily involved with Christian fellowship groups and my sorority at Dartmouth, and have spent significant time working as a biology lab assistant.
I highly value the people in my life, so make plenty of time to spend with friends and family.
