More About Me

I am a Master’s student at Carnegie Mellon University majoring in Civil & Environmental Engineering. Additionally, I graduated from Emory University in 2021 with majors in Applied Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. I love to travel and have spent the past 9 months in Madagascar teaching English through Fulbright. I have been tutoring for the past 4 years, and I love connecting with my students and watching them grow over time. I like to learn about my students and their passions and goals, and help them adapt to their learning style and incorporate their interests in sessions. I hope I can help my students feel more confident, more prepared, and excited to learn.

I grew up in Florida and loved paddle boarding and swimming in the ocean. This led me to pursue my degree, and in the future, I hope to be a water resources engineer for freshwater systems. I love math and science, and can’t wait to share that passion with my students!

Tutoring Experience

In the past year, I have been an English Teaching Assistant in Madagascar through Fulbright. I teach 18 in-person classes for 22 hours weekly with 20-120 students in each class. I design my own curriculum focused on English speaking & listening. In fall 2021, I was a substitute teacher in Manatee County. I subbed for classes K-8, adapting to various school systems and class environments. From 2020-2021, I was a private math/science teacher through Strive Academics. I taught middle school math, PSAT math prep, algebra I, geometry, AP Calculus, and AP Physics I. Additionally, 2020-2021, I was a volunteer tutor for CovEducation and Hollywood Pal. I taught algebra I & II and geometry. Finally, I was an assistant math teacher at Ben Franklin Academy, a private high school in Atlanta, GA. I worked independently with students in geometry, AP Calculus, and AP Physics. I assisted in grading homework and writing exams for all high school math subjects and AP Physics & Biology.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

I began volunteering through Key Club in high school, and volunteered over 100 hours a year. My favorite service was with Miracle League, where, almost every Saturday, I played baseball with children, teens, and adults who have physical and/or mental disabilities. In college, I continued volunteering on Saturday mornings through Trees Atlanta. For 3 hours every week, I planted trees in urban areas, removed invasive plants and/or worked to upkeep trees. After my first year with this organization, I became a trip lead for my university. I facilitated the communication between the organization and my university volunteer organization, as well as the volunteers themselves. Despite the challenges of working in the rain or getting hit by a shovel, I never questioned whether I should continue serving with Trees Atlanta. I absolutely loved exploring Atlanta communities, meeting students and community members passionate about service & the environment, and creating an impact in my community. After the university volunteer organization shut down due to Covid-19, I continued volunteering with Trees Atlanta as an individual volunteer and assisted with some of their youth programs. In addition to my Trees Atlanta service, I also participated in other projects while in university. After the Covid-19 shutdown, I began virtually volunteering with CovEducation and Hollywood PAL. Before the pandemic, I was attended an alternative spring break trip to Orlando, FL and became a trip lead for an alternative fall break trip to Chattanooga, TN. Both were focused on education and underserved children. Additionally, I volunteered as a tour guide and tour guide trainer for my university, and gave tours weekly prior to Covid-19. Finally, I served in a volunteer role as a Sophomore Advisor. In this role, I supported first year students and created programs to promote community in the residence hall.
