I recently graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. in Comparative Literature, as well as a secondary field in Gender Studies and a language citation in Arabic. I have tutored, taught classes, and facilitated workshops on subjects ranging from SAT prep to chemistry to spoken word poetry, and I especially enjoy working with middle school and high school students. I firmly believe that tutoring can and should be fun—even SAT prep! Working with a student individually allows the two of us to team up to tackle the material using a range of strategies until we find an approach that works for this particular student. My favorite subjects to tutor include writing and editing, whether we’re working on a research paper, a college application essay, or reviewing grammar; public speaking; SAT prep; and study skills and organization, because each of these areas boosts overall academic success and builds a student’s self-confidence. In any subject, I focus on study skills, critical thinking, and independent concept reinforcement so that soon the student will no longer need me to excel. Some of my own favorite subjects to study include languages (I’ve studied Arabic, Spanish, Latin, and a sprinkling of Japanese), medieval history, and electrical engineering. When I’m not tutoring, I spend my time writing and performing spoken word poetry, riding my bike around Boston, and learning to cook.
