As a historian of the United States, the Caribbean and Brazil, I have a desire for bridging gaps—past and present—between different people and societies. As a Spanish and Portuguese major at Princeton, I acquired reading and writing skills that not only increased my competency in foreign languages but that also helped me to be a better communicator in my native language, English. My current training in history has further equipped me with the analytical reading and writing skills that I use to guide my students in their own research and writing endeavors. I have also had extensive experience living, working, and researching in Brazil, which has taught me to be open to different ways of learning new things and heightened my desire to teach my students about other cultures. My past teaching experience has involved working with high school students learning Spanish, tutoring inmates at a correctional facility doing GED prep, and serving as a teaching assistant to undergraduates taking African American history.

I love learning and I desire that my students also develop a reasonable love for their subjects. My approach to teaching and tutoring is one that combines a solid grasp of academic content with generous attention to students’ individual abilities, needs, and interests. My diverse academic background has made me a flexible teacher, so while I am intentional about designing efficient tutoring sessions I am also sensitive to students’ varying learning styles. In addition to History and Spanish language tutoring, I also offer services to students seeking to improve their research and writing skills, verbal and writing SAT scores, and Spanish and U.S. History SAT subject test performance.
