I have professional tutoring and teaching experience in both formal and informal education. During my time at Boston University, I served as a teaching assistant for freshman courses and assisted students with homework and exam preparation. After graduation, I worked with the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, traveling to schools around western Pennsylvania and Ohio teaching science to students in kindergarten up through eighth grade.
As someone passionate about science, I was driven towards my educational path by a natural curiosity and wonder about the world around me. I believe that as kids we all have this natural drive inside of us that makes us all want to learn and ask questions. However, for some, this drive can sometimes get lost somewhere along the way. Tutoring allows us the opportunity to take the time and attention to create a learning environment that is as unique as each individual student. Through these environments we can take the time to make sure we're continuing to nurture that natural curiosity by making an effort to personalize lessons to each student's personality and learning style. In this way we can try to create a more positive attitude towards learning and make sure that we never stop asking those questions.
When I'm not working, I love to be outdoors, camping or hiking. I also enjoy watching or playing baseball and hockey, playing board games, or hanging out with my dog.
