I graduated from Connecticut College in 2014 where I majored in English with a minor in film studies; I plan to eventually pursue a PhD in English Literature. I tutored for three of my four years as an undergraduate in the Roth Writing Center located at my alma mater. As a writing center tutor I helped students of various skill levels promote clarity and eliminate ambiguity in their writing. Additionally, I have helped students develop close reading strategies across the humanities, particularly in the area of U.S. History, one of my personal favorite subjects. My approach to tutoring tends to revolve around questions; I often begin sessions simply by having the student describe what it is they wish to gain from the time we have and then changing our focus accordingly. Outside of academia my hobbies/interests include reading, screenwriting, classical Hollywood cinema (Hitchcock in particular), cooking, and improvisational comedy.
