I often tell my students that they should make the inside of their minds an interesting place to be, because they have to live there for the rest of their lives. To that end, I love helping students master concepts and expand their base of knowledge and sense of scope. I started tutoring in high school and have tutored elementary through college-aged students, as well as teaching 10th grade English for a year and serving as a teaching assistant at Harvard University and the University of Cape Town. I've tutored test prep, English, literature, writing, math, and social sciences.

My undergraduate degree is from Wellesley College and my masters is from Harvard, so while I've spent seven years in Boston's frigid clime, I love being back in my hometown. I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love to travel, and have been to more than 20 countries. I lived in South Africa for two years on a research fellowship, and I studied Arabic in Egypt. I learned to surf in Costa Rica and ate a lot of pasta in Italy.

In my free time I am a voracious reader, as well as a soccer player, a godparent to a delightful one-year-old who lives in Atlanta, and a total sucker for BBC adaptations (but I also love reality TV!).
