What do you enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized?
I love being able to change the way someone approaches problems. I want each student to see every new problem as an opportunity and attack it. But mostly, I love when someone has attacked enough problems that the fear of new challenges has dissipated.

What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
I’m not ready to call time on that particular contest just yet. Feels like I can do better.

What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?
I wanted to run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain while on a study abroad trip. Unfortunately, I overslept and didn’t have time to purchase the traditional white attire with red scarf and belt so I ran instead in jeans and a white t-shirt. I did touch one of the bulls, but I didn’t feel particularly lucky that year.
