BACKGROUND

Ana always knew she wanted a job where she could work closely with people, help others, and explain complex concepts in an accessible, easy-to-digest way. She took a circuitous route to realize that teaching checks all her boxes. Ana is a 2020 graduate of Olin College of Engineering, where she learned core engineering principles using project-based learning and human-centered design and was heavily involved in student support.

Before coming to NEIA, Ana was a virtual math and computer science tutor for students from under-resourced schools all over the country. She learned about her students as unique individuals and helped build their self-confidence and bring their foundational math skills to grade-level proficiency and beyond.

Ana is passionate about human-centered design, sustainability, diversity and inclusion, demystifying math, running, and baking.
