"I am happy to travel to a number of areas in and around the city to tutor students who are interested in improving performance in a variety of subjects including SAT tests. My tutoring style is 'back to basics'- I want to make even the most complicated topics as simple as possible and then use building blocks to go after harder problems. I believe in 'tricks of the trade', repetition/practice, and I always respond to emails with questions or concerns in a timely fashion.."

" I tutored younger students in the theater department throughout college, serving as a mentor for many underclassmen during my senior year. I believe a good teacher is a good listener; someone who can tailor their teaching style to the needs of any student, something I hope I will be able to do for you.

I treat tutoring the same way I treat directing actors: there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so I've learned to identify the specific strategies that will work for each person in order to guide them on the path to success. In my spare time, I read, see plays, watch movies, and perform improv comedy.."
