One of my favorite parts of tutoring is watching a student’s excitement when they can apply a skill they have learned. I graduated from Yale University, and I earned my MA in Anthropology from the University of Arizona. I am now pursuing a PhD in Anthropology, with a minor in Geography and additional education in Ecology. I have six years’ experience teaching and tutoring sciences, math, social sciences, and writing to students from 5th grade through university. When not teaching, I conduct research in Brazil, Canada, and Peru. In my free time, I enjoy bicycle rides and helping in soup kitchens.
