I am a graduate from Sarah Lawrence College, class of 2014, studying literature, theatre and psychology. Fun fact: I love dogs, good New York Theatre, ramen noodles, and Jane Austin Novels. I ended up here at Varsity tutors, because I am passionate about teaching. It is something that I also plan to go to grad school for to teach either at a high school or collegiate level. It is something that I have slowly discovered throughout my college career. I have had the great pleasure of teaching 4 summers in a row at an art program in Westchester in creative writing and theatre. Later I went on to tutor in the more academic realms during college, however I still found creativity to be an essential part of reasoning. The art of teaching is a collaborative process. It is a dialogue between both the teacher and the student--a mutual process of learning. While in school, I taught a few middle school aged student with my skills in writing, essay, literature and language arts. Those wonderful students taught me how tutoring is more like being a guide than it is posing as the answers at the back of a text book. I want each student to find their own voice, which is why I believe communication is the essential tool in the learning process in order to create cogent and organized arguments. It is a way to discover, to test ideas, and even to have fun in the process.
