Born and raised in New York, I am fortunate enough to have lived in two out of the five boroughs and the longest island in the contiguous United States. I studied Romance Languages in the big city, with minors in Psychology and Business, and I also studied abroad in Paris before receiving my Bachelor's degree in 2011. I am currently studying French Literary Translation at NYU and looking forward to visiting those sweet pastry shops of Paris again.
I have tutored for about five years now and I enjoy it very much. I took quite a few AP classes in high school, so I understand how fast-paced some classes are and how overwhelming that can be for the student. I believe in spending the extra time to make sure that the student understands the new or difficult concepts so that he/she can feel confident in the subject and in himself/herself before we move on. I strive to create an environment that is both comfortable and productive, and I am not afraid to use technology and humor to help a student learn and retain new material.
In my free time, I like to walk around the city in search of street fairs (and free food), watch sitcoms in foreign languages, experiment with baking and cooking, take trips with my family and friends, and practice yoga with my 2-year-old shih-tzu, Barem.
