"Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us. As a tutor, my goal is not only to prepare students for the tests and essays that will be used to evaluate them, but also to give them the skills they need to prosper as members of an English-speaking society. ."

"After my junior year at Harvard, I spent an intensive summer tutoring high school students who were taking classes at the Harvard Summer School. I loved watching these motivated students make both academic and personal strides. After graduating, I taught chemistry at Westminster, a boarding school in Connecticut.

"Writing is what I do, and I am especially well-trained when it comes to writing the academic essay. 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.."

" My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel. I also love trivia and 90's music."
