ExperienceCurrently an AVID tutor in a local middle and high school. I have 5 years total experience tutoring university undergraduate students. I'm able to tutor and have tutored students in the following UOregon courses: MATH 211-213 and MATH 231-233.
In my varied experience in the education field, I've found most passion for work with small groups and one-on-one situations. Providing support and encouragement in academics is my overarching goal. No two brains are the same and individuals, especially when it comes to education, must be treated as such. I don't believe any student or person fits neatly inside one "box" and it's vital my expectations as a tutor reflect just that. I carry these ideals into each session with me in order to build constructive, mutually-beneficial relationships with students. See some highlights from my resume below. I'm more than happy to answer any further questions about my experiences.:

HobbiesI just returned from an 8 month stint abroad. I started out in Italy where I completed a trekking pilgrimage, the San Francesco Way, from Florence to Rome. From there, I ventured to Thailand where I worked as an ESL teacher and seized opportunities to travel extensively within the country. I have a lot of momentum from this period of global exploration that I want to bring back to Eugene. In general, I'm an active, responsible, independent young adult who has been described by friends has someone with a positive attitude and an excellent sense of humor. I find immense value in trying new things and maintaining a state of wonderment, even in the most mundane or seemingly familiar situations.
Other interests include: gardening, yoga, art projects, self-educating, and more.
