Emory University – B.A., Latin
I began tutoring professionally after entering college, spending one year as a language tutor for Emory University, then pursuing private tutoring. I have worked with students of all ages, from preschool to middle-aged, and in a variety of subjects. I have aided students in preparing for various standardized tests (from the ISEE to the ACT), school subjects, and languages. My students achieve high grades in their school subjects and do very well on standardized tests.
I possess a wealth of knowledge in various areas, but one of the things that I find fun about learning is seeing how subjects connect to the real world. My students find learning and their subject matters a lot more interesting when I start pointing out these connections to them. By nature, I am a very personable and patient and I can work with any kind of student. As such, students really enjoy tutoring sessions with me.

University of Georgia – B.A., Journalism
I have been tutoring students since high school. My teachers came to me to instruct younger students with Algebra. During that time, I also helped them with Latin, German, and Journalism. Over the years, I have added many other subjects to my repertoire, and I have worked with students from many schools and home school groups. I always focus on listening to my students in order to diagnose any problems they may have and better develop their study habits. I always confer with students and parents to set standards for the effort the student needs to make.
Colorado State University – B.S., Project Management (specialization in infrastructure security, hazard mitigation, and environmental concerns)
I’m an Atlanta native but was born in Germany. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University and am currently under review for readmission to Georgia Tech for my master’s degree in environmental engineering. I speak French, and I am working on improving my German and Spanish. My formal tutoring experience began in Savannah, Georgia with a large Brazilian community and the necessity of English proficiency. English as a second language tutoring is always interesting because you have to find a common language somewhere between English and, in this case, Portuguese and lead the student back the way you came. I’m a huge believer in knowing what level my students are and how they process their material. Tutoring will never have a cookie-cutter formula! I’m not there to be a boss or supervisor, nor a friend: I’m a guide, and every trip has its own requirements.
