EducationBA in Political Science and Psychology from the University of New Mexico, graduated summa cum laude in 2008.
ExperienceI've worked as a staffer on Capitol Hill for the past few years, but I also tutor DC elementary students in Math and Reading through a local community learning center. I scored in the top percentiles on the ACT and SAT and I was a National Merit Finalist. I scored 5s (the highest score) on the AP English test, the AP U.S. History test and the AP Psychology test.
HobbiesI love helping young people succeed in school. I think students too often assume they are bad at a subject simply because the material hasn't been presented to them well. I try to make learning an engaging activity, not just a lecture. Learning should be fun!
While I'm happy to focus study on one subject, I'm also happy to cross subjects! I have experience in math, psychology, reading, writing, English, communication, and the humanities.
I think it's also important to get along with my students. I strive to make a personal connection with each student in order to maximize the quality of both of our experiences.
I expect to learn from my students, in addition to teaching! Learning is best as a two-way street.
