Education

Lafayette College - BS, Psychology

Experience

I am a magna cum laude graduate of Lafayette College, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I completed two years of a clinical psychologist doctoral program, and then I realized that being a psychologist was not the right career for me. I find teaching to be a much more fulfilling choice for me. My goal is to now become a math middle school/high school teacher. I have been a tutor since high school when I began tutoring Latin. Later, while still in high school, I started tutoring Math and continued throughout college. I now tutor Algebra 1 and 2, Elementary and Middle School Math, Geometry, Precalculus, Statistics, Trigonometry, SAT Prep, Psychology, College Essays, Essay Editing, Reading, Writing, Latin, Calculus 1 and 2, and Study Skills and Organization. I believe that the most successful tutors structure their lesson plans to fit their students' specific style of learning. I like to be available for all of my students. I will do my best to be creative and make difficult concepts simple so that my students can thoroughly understand the topics. In my free time, I enjoy practicing Capoeira and meditating.
