"I hold a PhD in Biology with a research emphasis in evolution, genomics, bioinformatics, and statistics. I currently teach at the undergraduate, post-graduate, high school, and middle school levels in a variety of topics. I have also really enjoyed working with younger students as young as kindergarten.

Teaching is my passion, and I make my interest in the topic infectious to my students. Regardless of topic, I am skilled at summarizing content and making it easier for students to digest and grasp quickly. Further, I am talented at making any topic engaging -- even standardized test curriculum! Students learn more efficiently if they can see the applications of the topic to their lives and find a reason to care about the material. It is my goal to help students forge connections between the material and their daily lives and find a reason to care about learning.

As a scientific researcher, quantitative skills are absolutely required. I enjoy sharing my love of quantitative reasoning with students of all ages. In particular, I love teaching standardized test mathematics (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT) and statistics (introductory through advanced), including programming in R.

I am especially interested in helping students with test anxiety or those with diagnosed learning or other disabilities. Throughout the years, I have worked with students with ADD/ADHD, autism, oppositional defiant disorder, dyslexia, total blindness, hearing loss, and physical disabilities. I find it personally enriching to empower students to be their best versions of themselves, regardless of how differently abled they may be.

I strongly encourage students looking for a compassionate, nurturing instructor to contact me. If you have any questions at all, please send me a message!

Note:

I work often with students from Syracuse University IST 687, American University ITEC 621, and Biostatistics students from various MPH programs include George Washington University. I'm familiar with the curriculum for these programs and can help you meet the ex" less...
