The most fundamental aspect of tutoring, to me, lies in promoting dialogues, as opposed to monologues. I want my students to see my passion for what I teach, and in turn I want to find out what makes them ask more questions and arrive at more answers -- overall, for them to be able to determine where their own passions lie. This could be as elemental as applying their interests to whatever it is they are studying, be it finding literary bits about ancient sport to practice Latin grammar or envisioning the perfect essay in relation to a perfect layer cake.

My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests. My passions as a scholar lie in the humanities -- my two and a half years in the pre-medical program at Fordham notwithstanding -- particularly in American and European history, literature and Latin. In the fall, I aim to apply to graduate school for classical studies, and I anticipate tutoring with Varsity to be very instrumental in getting me back into an academic mode of thinking. I am excited to learn from my students while also imparting some of my excitement for and interest in my various disciplines.

When I'm not working, I love to read, write, attend concerts, visit museums, travel and eat -- I'm working through a massive, ever-expanding list of recipes to try. Recent triumphs have included borscht, rice pudding, focaccia and, most proudly, perfectly poached eggs.
