"I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in several languages, and enjoy teaching Italian, Spanish, and English as a second language, using immersion techniques. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Literary Translation from Brown University. This year I am embarking on a new academic pursuit; I plan to pursue a PhD in Molecular Biology beginning in the fall." ...

"A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt. This is what I do for all my students. A little more about me: I have recently relocated to the Upper West Side after completing my M.S. at Stanford in August."
