More About Me
I love tutoring because it allows me to tailor my expertise to each student’s needs and interests, allowing us to collaborate in our learning. I’m always looking for ways to bring students’ unique interests and obsessions into our tutoring sessions, showing how academic study can be instantly applied in different contexts within, and beyond, the classroom. I love short novels, chocolate eclairs, Carly Rae Jepsen and professional tennis.
