I am a Ph.D. candidate in English Literature at Harvard University, currently living with my husband in Austin. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton University and my Master of Arts degree in English from Harvard. I have spent the past two years teaching at Harvard, leading discussion sections, running my own small writing seminar, and working individually with students. I am a passionate believer in the importance of individual tutoring, because I believe that every student has unique skills and stumbling blocks that need to be identified and individually addressed. While I have spent a lot of time working with college students, I love working with students of all ages, middle school on up! My favorite subjects to tutor are literature and writing because I love helping students to think critically and to articulate their ideas clearly. I am also eager to help students achieve their academic goals by succeeding on standardized tests of all kinds. When I am not tutoring, you can usually find me in a coffee shop, at home, or in the library researching and writing my dissertation on Victorian literature. In my free time, I love cooking fancy dinners, going to the theater (I acted and directed throughout high school and college) and watching movies at home.
