I'm an East Coaster now living in Los Angeles. Originally from New England, I went to college at New York University. From NYU, I obtained an Honors MBFA in Film & Television, as well as an English minor. Much of my coursework consisted of English, History, Media, and Production courses. I even spent a semester abroad in London! My passion is the humanities: writing, English, and history specifically. I've tutored these areas, as well as college and test prep, to middle school students through the Breakthrough Collaborative, and on an individual basis during my time in New York. I think the most crucial part to successful tutoring is finding a specific goal and realizing that goal through dedicated, one-on-one time spent with a student. For me, the best part of tutoring is seeing a student's eyes light up as they find a passion for an area they never knew they loved. Outside of tutoring, I'm a writer. I love going to the movies, spending a lazy Sunday reading a great book, hiking, and exploring new places with my camera.
