I earned a B.S. in Biology and Mathematics from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, where I completed Capstone projects in elementary science education and Hyperbolic Geometry. I then earned an M.S. in Biology from New York University in New York, New York. My graduate studies included coursework and research in genetics, immunology, and mathematical modeling. I also participated in the NYU America Reads/Counts program as a literary tutor. This experience led me to pursue a career in math and science education. I have worked as both a professional tutor and learning specialist in mathematics and science at several colleges and universities throughout New England, compiling over ten years of experience. I have continued to develop and present workshops for study skills and learning theory in mathematics and science. My research interests include cognitive learning theory, mathematics education, developmental education, and adult learning.
Currently, I work part-time as professional math and science tutor in the Endicott Tutoring Center. I work with students enrolled in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, analysis of functions, and calculus I & II.
