"I am a recent Duke graduate with several years of tutoring experience and a heart for helping others succeed. Recognizing that hard work becomes easier with interest and engagement, I make the learning environment relaxed and enjoyable - and sometimes outright fun! I find tutoring to be incredibly rewarding, and strive to have my students view their work the same way, leaving them feeling more comfortable in their coursework, confident in their abilities, and excited for new challenges. For three years I worked as an ACT teacher and tutor, helping students raise their scores an average of 4 points, and as many as 9. Most recently, I worked with a struggling college senior (self-described as "bad at math") to achieve a score of 100% on her College Algebra final..."

"The central dichotomy of my life has always been that of academics and the performing arts; as I have spent the last six years since graduating from Columbia University in New York auditioning and performing, I have also found myself drawn to working with kids. I have worked as a nanny and tutored kids between the ages of three and seventeen, and I feel especially qualified to work with students on the writing and verbal sections of the SAT and editing their personal statements and college essays. As a high schooler, I was one of those students who LOVED standardized tests; I have always viewed them as an exciting way to measure progress and hone in on, not only academic skills, but also time management, organization, and maintaining a sense of personal calm. In fact, I love the entire college application process because I think of it not as an opaque, mysterious world of judgment behind closed doors, but as the first opportunity in a student’s life to find the perfect fit..."

"From listening to my grandmother’s folktales as a child, to reading for pleasure and learning as a student, to writing with clarity and insight in my professional career, I look for the story that lies at the heart of a written work. As a tutor, my goal is to not only provide the student with strategies and confidence to perform optimally on exams and college applications, but to imbue a lifelong motivation to engage in reading for meaning, communicate ideas effectively and write with clarity and impact. I begin by asking my student to write on a personal topic for ten minutes. Together, we read what the student has written in order that I may assess the student’s areas of strength and those that need development..."
