My goal is to help students break down the wall that is so often built up against certain subjects. Everyone hits the "wall" at different ages and when most students do begin to struggle, they often say, "well I'm just not good at" whichever subject they are struggling with. I do not believe this is true. I think that sometimes students struggle because each person thinks in a unique way and sometimes the conventional ways subject matter is taught is not compatible with one's thinking.

With an undergraduate math and biology degree and while I am pursuing a PhD in Biomathematics, I do know that there are several ways to approach each type of problem; you just have to find what works for you. I am here to share the "tricks" and think outside of the box for those who struggle to understand subjects when taught in a conventional classroom setting.

I have hands-on experience tutoring college and high school level math such as Algebra I&II and Calculus I&II. I also have experience teaching high school and college level Chemistry classes from when I was a Teaching Assistant in college. In this position I would run labs and hold lectures and study sessions rather than just observe and grade assignments.

I also understand those who have a packed schedule and I have learned how to manage academics, work, athletics, and a social life successfully by pairing my heavy course load in college with teaching assistant positions and being a collegiate athlete. This also allows me to coach students on time management and organization.
