#### Education

Currently finishing my PhD in Life Sciences at Northwestern University. Published co-first author research article in scientific journal, PLOS Genetics.2006 - Earned Pharmaceutical Sciences bachelor's degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Graduated magna cum laude.

#### Experience

Just moved to Kansas City from Chicago where I tutored in 2014 with Varsity Tutors. My teaching and tutoring experiences are wide-ranging, including reading and vocabulary with elementary students and biology lab experiments and research proposal writing for high school and college students. I like to ask questions that prompt critical thinking from the student. I enjoy using real-life analogies and examples to help students understand a new concept or relevancy of a subject. I always focus on maintaining a very positive, comfortable environment for the individual. I want to help students reach their full potential by supporting their own unique thoughts.Most recent tutor assignments: 7th grade math, 7th grade AP science, Geometry, 10th grade chemistry, ACT test prep

#### Hobbies

Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, I enjoy spending most of my free time with family. My husband and I have 6 nieces and nephews all under the age 7. FUN!! We adopted a puppy named Lucy and she loves to play fetch and go on walks. I'm a former competitive soccer and basketball player. Now I enjoy staying active in recreational team sports in any way possible, especially kickball!#### Preferred Subjects
