" Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests.

"I believe one of my greatest strengths is not only my own ability to write fluidly, but also to help others do the same while still respecting their individual voices. I love to work with students on college essays, other applications, and general writing skills - this past year, one of my students with whom I worked on a college essay was accepted to every school to which he applied, and I work to achieve that goal with all of my students! I'm also experienced in Verbal and Writing test prep, particularly for the SAT, and find great satisfaction in watching my students' scores steadily improve.

" I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music. My enthusiasm for working with students continues to grow as I meet more capable, intelligent young people who often just need insight into how to tackle the mass of material they receive in the classroom. My background is as a classically trained singer, and I know first-hand the value of seeking the best help to improve one’s skills.

" I've taught for Kaplan Test Prep (no relation, though my name is Kaplan) and I've designed my own prep courses that draw from a wide variety of methods and teaching styles. Whether tutoring for a specific test, or teaching a subject more generally, I work with students to find a method of preparation and learning that works for them. Besides tutoring and education, I'm interested in music, hiking--both interests that I pursued in Brazil, where I lived for three years. I look forward to hearing from you!."
