I've always had a passion for helping others develop and enhance their talents to their highest potential.

The Instructioanl Support Services Program has created an avenue for me to continue along this path.

I started tutoring during undergrad because my professor recommended it, but after wroking with students, I found it's something I'm really passionate about.

What is your favorite thing about being a tutor?

I love those moments when true learning starts, that "aha!". The brain starts owrking and students start to regain that childlike curiosity. Learning is about embracing your inner child.

It's always hard seeing students struggle with concepts and not being able to show them a way that they can understand. It can be frustrating, but it's part of the learning process.

Something you want others to know about you:

I'm a gymnast and I love learning new things, talking shop about anything. I also like repairing computers and phones.
