It is my responsibility to help my students discover how they learn best, and to make even challenging concepts comprehensible by playing to their strengths. I particularly enjoy helping students learn to articulate clear arguments in their writing assignments, but am also at home working through tough social and political theory, most high school coursework, and SAT and LSAT preparation.

As a writing tutor, I will help you make the most of your source material and develop your instincts and ideas, while helping you to write correctly, concisely, and persuasively. In every subject, I will make important content accessible by adapting to your learning style. I believe there are never more than a few silly mnemonics, clear diagrams, or concept reconfigurations between a student and a good understanding of tough material. I’ll be there to find out what works for you!

A little about me: After attending Harvard as an undergraduate, I decided to defer law school in order to pursue another lifelong passion, dancing. I am currently dancing professionally with New York Theatre Ballet, but missed the particular rigor of a scholastic environment, and, of course, students! Prior to working for NYTB, I gained additional writing experience as a fellow with the American Constitution Society, a progressive legal nonprofit, and as an assistant editor with the American Association for Justice.
