I graduated from Williams College, receiving honors with my B.A. in English Literature. In 2016, I will receive my M.A. in Art and Art Education from Columbia University. Since graduating from Williams, I have been teaching middle school English and high school art in public schools. With my 9 years of private tutoring experience, I also meet with clients all over New York City and Long Island, tutoring middle and high school students in Test Prep, Writing and Reading, and adults in English language.

I believe in hard work and having fun while prepping for important tests. As a native New Yorker growing up here, I attended Hunter College High School and the Brearley School, so I know how important test prep is! Because of my experience as a teacher and student, I firmly believe that excelling at school not only leads to great academic opportunities, but also an essential sense of self-esteem and accomplishment. I believe that every student has the potential to achieve amazing things, and I will guide each and every one of them to that.

In my spare time I like to see jazz, classical and rock concerts around the city, go to museums, make art, spend time with my pets, cook and exercise.
