"...During my time at Yale, I studied Classics and Humanities, served on the Executive Board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and travelled throughout Italy and Greece on a research fellowship. As a tutor, I am committed to helping my students reach their full academic potential. When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history.
