Summa Cum Laude, Arthur B. Hurlin Recipient, Academic All-Star, 9-time MVP (Field hockey, Ice hockey, Softball)
I am currently a Middle School Science Teacher at a selective, private preparatory school in the area. I teach Life Science, Earth Science, and Physical Science in grades 6-8. Prior to teaching in the Middle School, I taught Environmental Science, Marine Biology, and Ecology. Aside from teaching, I also coach the Varsity Field Hockey and Softball teams. I have been a tutor since I was in college, and have worked with students of all ages. Although I was a Science major, I worked very closely with a student majoring in Business as well as students taking high school math and biology. Tutoring is a very enriching experience for me, as it allows for the fostering of student learning in a more controlled manner than in my classroom. I pride myself on meeting students where they are in order to make sure I am addressing his or her personal needs. It is a practice of mine to draw parallels between the content we are covering and a topic of interest for the student to help draw connections that will enrich the student's understanding of the material.

AP Scholar with Distinction, MSBOA Outstanding Soloist (Clarinet)
I am a highly enthusiastic, engaging, and motivated tutor that loves getting to know people and figuring out what each specific student needs to succeed at what they do! I have tutored high school, middle school, and elementary school students for the past four years and was a member of my high school's Writing Center. I am a lover of English and literature, fascinated by history and politics, and can appreciate mathematics. I am interested in pursuing a career in politics or anthropology and maybe becoming a teacher at some point down the line. In my free time I love to read, dance, run, play the clarinet, and watch football on the weekends!

I am originally from North Carolina but currently reside in Connecticut. My parents are both naval veterans, which allowed me and my siblings to move around a lot, which, then, was a lot of fun. Ever since I was a kid, I've always been passionate about academics. As I got older, I became more passionate about giving back to all those who have given to me to allow me to get to where I am today. In the past, this has come in the form of being a mathematics teacher intern at Breakthrough New Haven, a program that aims to provide youth from low-income families with the tools necessary to assist them in matriculating to top tier college preparatory schools; I went through the program myself. I've also gone back to my middle school to tutor. Furthermore, at Princeton, I have had the privilege of tutoring kids in the local area. My strengths lie in the STEM field, namely, mathematics and chemistry. Upon graduating, I plan to assume a position as an associate material engineer and hope to obtain a master's or two--MBA and/or MScEng. Here, at school, I also have the opportunity of working in the Frist Campus Center, the student hub on-campus. There, I am a building supervisor. Our job is to ensure that our patrons are getting the most out of the building, making sure that their stay is a pleasant one. This experience has allowed me to develop my interpersonal skills, which are quintessential for efficacy in tutoring. I believe that being able to connect with students one-on-one is what allows successful tutors to drive home the material, ensuring that their students retain the material well past imminent examinations and the like. I look forward to using my past experiences to excel as a tutor and ensure the academic success of your children.

I am currently an undergraduate at Princeton, most likely majoring in Environmental Engineering or the Geosciences. I am very passionate about the environment and am quick to pick up any sustainability cause - whether it be environmental activism or spreading the virtues of composting, recycling, and eating a plant-based diet. I love spending time outdoors running, biking or walking. I also enjoy playing the piano, baking, and writing. Academically, I enjoy a challenge - whether it's physics, writing, chemistry, or math - I feel as though solving a problem is one of the most fulfilling experiences. As for tutoring philosophy, I really enjoy helping others out: teaching others how to grasp a deeper concept is not just a "job but rather is a fulfilling and encouraging experience especially when you can be an emotional support for a student and simply be someone they can trust.

James Madison High School Faculty Award Recipient, National French Exam (First Place, 2 Years), AP Scholar with Distinction, Boys State Senator, Boy Scouts of America (Eagle Scout, Vigil Honor Member, Order of the Arrow), National Start School Later Hall of Fame
I believe that tutoring is all about paying it forward. Inspired by a mentor of my own, a history teacher of mine, my tutoring career began in middle school with a student struggling with history. I loved it. Coming from Northern Virginia, where academic competition is steep, I realized that many students felt left behind and felt like they lacked a personal connection with the work that they were doing. This has been the cornerstone of what I believe tutoring is all about, and over time this approach has not only brought me many great friends, but also deepened my love for and understanding of the material. While my areas of tutoring proficiency have expanded over time, my belief in the importance of the relationship between the student and the tutor has not. I have worked with students on things from editing a French essay to learning how the Federal system works to how to do long division, and in each case I have loved building those relationships. I have long felt that this was an important area of education policy and, as the representative of Fairfax County's 188,000 students on its School Board, I tried to bring those personal experiences into effective education policy making. Working in the education policy arena has given me a new insight into the best ways to instruct students but also into the goals I hope to pursue in my future; education policy remains an important interest of mine, and I hope to work in that area after graduating.
