I was a student in the West Windsor-Plainsboro school district from kindergarten through 12th grade and transferred to Cornell University after spending my freshman year at Emory University. I understand very well the discouragement of starting over, but I now think fondly of how much I grew through the process of confronting challenges. Iâ€™m eager to encourage and walk alongside students as they, too, develop their own resilience with academics!
I have previously tutored mathematics and language arts, but I also enjoy teaching biology and Spanish. Formerly an early education associate teacher and tutor for 1st-6th grade students, I continue to volunteer regularly with Sunday School programs at local churches as I love working with young children.
When Iâ€™m not tutoring, I enjoy running, taking photos, and baking. This coming fall, I will begin the dual Masterâ€™s and Dietetic Internship at Tufts Universityâ€™s Frances Stern Nutrition Center in hopes of becoming a board certified specialist in pediatric nutrition and certified medical interpreter.
