I am a doctoral student in theater history at Yale University currently living in Boston. I also hold a B.A. with honors in English Literature. I offer tutoring in elementary and middle school math, English literature, and reading comprehension; I can also offer particular expertise in writing.
I am a published critic and scholar, and I currently work as an editorial assistant and proofreader. I also love teaching writing. I have worked for three years in writing intensive courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, and have also helped lead writing workshops for middle and high school students. I enjoy working with students from a wide variety of age levels and educational backgrounds.
While the rules governing grammar, usage, and essay construction may appear challenging for many, I believe that, with effort and guidance, anyone can learn to write well. I enjoy helping students acquire the skills that will allow them to express themselves clearly and fluidly.
I take a similar approach to teaching reading, literature, and math. When working with students, I do all I can do demystify the process of learning a subject, working with them to uncover its inner logic and obtain the tools and knowledge they need to succeed as students.
Finally, I think that learning is fun. I communicate that sense of enthusiasm to my students, so that they will be encouraged to exert the effort and focus necessary to achieve mastery over a subject.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, going to see theater, trying new restaurants, and exploring Boston.
