"I have enjoyed teaching and tutoring since 2008! I began my career work with students in South Asia at a prestigious international boarding school. I am now based in the US and continue to work with students from around the world. I enjoy getting to know my students and their families. My passion is lifelong learning and helping students meet their educational goals: both short-term goals and long-term goals.

I studied archaeology and geology at a competitive liberals arts college near Chicago. Thinking scientifically comes naturally to me and I have enjoyed working with students who love science as well as those who do not. I can compare scientific concepts to things that are more familiar to students, helping them understand abstract and complex ideas.

I studied TESOL at a prestigious university in the UK and picked up some British English to supplement my native American English. During my 4.5 years in South Asia, all of the colleagues in my department and almost all of my students were learning English as a second, third, or even fourth language.

My full-time job involves teaching Common Core State Standards (CCSS). I enjoy helping my students make progress in acquiring the skills articulated in the CCSS.

Do contact me to see if we would be a good fit as tutor and student. I enjoy meeting new students and we can decide together if I am the right tutor for you." less...
