Profile

I graduated with a BS in Biology from Loyola University Maryland in 2011 and have been teaching science and math ever since. For six years I taught high school Biology and Anatomy, and am currently teaching middle school science (7th grade Life Science and 8th grade Physical Science) at Georgetown Day School in Washington, D.C. Working with different ages of students have helped me understand that students approach learning in many different ways. I think it is crucial to encourage students as they work through difficult material that challenges them. Small victories make a big difference in confidence building, especially during the middle school years.

I love tutoring because I enjoy building relationships with students and seeing their confidence build. As a teacher, I love working one-on-one with students because the personal connection helps build a trusting foundation for education. I often see the most improvement from students when I acknowledge their frustrations and encourage their questions.

I have tutored one-on-one in both Algebra and Prealgebra in the past. I know and understand that some students need steps broken down and explained thoroughly. Math is a subject that can be discouraging for students in middle school and high school and my goal is to always foster a sense of "this can be done and I can do it" to break students of the negativity that surrounds the subject.

I love teaching and tutoring science. It is a subject that is constantly changing and I think it is important to connect subject material to real world events and examples. Once students make connections, the material seems less intimidating and more interesting!

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding my profile or qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you and your family!
