ABOUT Connor Plunkett

I’m an aspiring musician and sociologist who absolutely loves teaching. I began teaching at a science museum eight years ago, and caught the bug! I've worked with Ivy Bound since July 2019. My goal is to find problem-solving strategies and explanations tailored to each student, and to help them build up a versatile "tool box" to approach unfamiliar problems on standardized tests or in classes with confidence and creativity. I love to learn, and hope to share that love of learning with my students!
