Whitney (or Whit) has been teaching and tutoring just about every subject since undergrad. While her mission has always been to help students set and attain amazing goals, her true passion lies in supporting students as they face the stress and mental roadblocks that inevitably come with admissions, academics, and testing. Pulling from her years of teaching yoga, coaching skydivers, and dealing with her own adult ADHD diagnosis, Whit brings mindfulness, motivation and productivity, and self-compassion techniques to her work with every student. She believes that studying can and should be fun, engaging, empowering, and even life changing!
Whit lives in Durham, NC with her clan of rescue doggos. Besides teaching and tutoring, Whit helps develop books, online resources, and course material for Manhattan Prep across multiple test lines. When not working, she spends time teaching and taking hot yoga classes, hiking and camping with her dogs, climbing (indoors and out), and traveling to as many new places as possible. Whitney has a B.A. in political science and did her Masters in applied economics (yup, she’s an applied econometrician).
