I’ve had a passion for education my whole life: as early as I can remember I was helping my younger siblings and friends with their homework. I’ve since tutored students as part of a private practice and while working at Sylvan Learning Center. After graduating from Northeastern with a Bachelor’s in mathematics last winter, I’ve been working as a Paraeducator at Hingham High School, where I specialize in assisting struggling students with their science and math classes. To me, education is about more than just imparting knowledge or preparing students for university or the workforce; it is part of a vital process of holistic personal development that situates a person within their society. Everything we learn in school has an origin or a purpose; I try to help students see the big picture that sometimes eludes them, and connect their learning to the world at large. I find this approach helps students understand and remember topics more deeply, creating a genuine interest where they’re able to see the internal logic of problems, rather than just memorizing ways to solve them. When I’m not with students, I can be found on running, playing piano, or hiking a mountain.
Northeastern University BA in Mathematics, minor in Liberal Arts Graduated Magna Cum Laude in December 2018
I have tutored privately since I was 17, and worked at Sylvan Learning while in university. Currently, I am a paraeducator at Hingham High School, and a part time tutor at Axiom Learning Center.
I like playing piano, hiking, sprinting, and studying history and philosophy.
I love teaching and explaining science at every level!
