What is your favorite class to tutor?

Though I'm a biologist at heart, I enjoy teaching the problem-solving logic behind solving mathematical questions in Calculus I and II.

What is your favorite food?

Granola, peanut butter, and bananas together.

What is the craziest thing you have done?

I spent a summer in Florida and kayaked on the bay at night to see bioluminescent dinoflagellates (glowing water)!

What instruments do you play?

As a band geek, I've picked up a lot of instruments over my musical tenure. I began with trombone and piano, then learned xylophone, flute, tenor drums, baritone, tuba, saxophone, violin, and guitar.

If you were a monster, what type of monster would you be and where would be your domain?

I would be a forest-dwelling tree monster (like the Whomping Willow in Harry Potter).
