I graduated from the University of Miami with a 3.9 GPA, completing the pre-med track, majoring in Biology and Theatre Arts, and minoring in Chemistry and Psychology. I love learning and have a passion for teaching and inspiring others. I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I grew up reading textbooks for fun and began competing in and winning math competitions at the age of 10. I am continually taking classes and reading books to expand upon my knowledge and skill sets. My hobbies include reading, songwriting, singing, violin, piano, and dance.
My Teaching Experience
I began peer tutoring in middle school and have been teaching ever since. The last several years I have extensively tutored one-on-one, and I also have significant experience teaching classes and workshops to both adults and children.
I have helped failing students pass their exams, A/B students accelerate to the top of their classes, and dozens of students reach their test prep goals. I am a master not only of teaching the content needed for ACT/SAT/ISEE/HSPT/CHSPE, but of effectively teaching and implementing test taking and pacing strategies that can cause dramatic score improvement.
My Teaching Style
I am told my enthusiasm and passion for learning are contagious. I have an ability to connect with my students and to break down difficult concepts into easy-to-understand, manageable chunks.
I am able to adapt to the needs of my students and also work as a cheerleader for them, motivating them to work hard and smart to achieve their goals. We’ll identify goals together, discuss the student’s personal preferences and learning styles, and craft a plan that works for the individual student.
