"I received my undergraduate degree in Writing Seminars and Classics from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

"In many cases, classroom learning cannot replace one-on-one learning in terms of efficiency and efficacy. For this reason, tutoring is often an invaluable component of the schooling process. My academic successes have not only left me with semantic knowledge, but also a number of strategies that can aid struggling students in their comprehension, allowing for procedural learning that will be effective after content-based knowledge is forgotten. I try to inspire students by disseminating information in a manner that they will feel engaged and challenged -- using relevant examples, and thereby forcing them to think critically ...

"Not only have I taught math and science classes at a non-public high school, I have also led SAT-prep classes and instructed students privately in reading, writing, math, and in preparation for a variety of standardized tests (ACT, SAT, PSAT, SSAT, GED). Besides my years of experience and deep content knowledge, my strength as a tutor stems from an intuitive understanding of how to connect with students and explain content in creative ways. I work very hard to bring that "Aha!" moment to students. I love teaching and being involved in the field of education -- I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing with my life!." ...

"I have a younger sister applying to college now, so I'm once again in the throws of reading over various essay drafts and navigating the Common App. Aside from tutoring, I also like theatre, dance, ice skating, and chocolate! As an artist, arts educator and dramaturg, I'm curious and passionate about literature and history, and how these things inform our society in the present. I want to help other students find ways to be excited about these subjects. The things you learn in school should feel applicable to your life and I can help you rediscover how, while helping with any material that feels particularly challenging or inaccessible." ...
