What do you enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized?
What I enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized is the focus on each student’s specific needs. It is important to treat each student as an individual with particular ambitions and work together to best address their goals in an effective manner. I love helping students reach their personal goals!

My greatest achievement was graduating with my Master’s degree in 2016. In addition to my coursework, I assisted with research and held a position as a graduate assistant. I learned a lot during this experience and took great pride in rising to the presented challenges!
