I am a recent graduate of Columbia University where I received my MA in Philosophy. I am currently preparing to continue my study in philosophy in a PhD program. My training in philosophy has afforded me ample training in critical thinking and reading strategies applicable to a broad variety of subject areas. In addition, my studies have emphasized strong analytical writing skills for composing clear, organized, and persuasive papers. I am always excited to help students formulate their ideas — and personality! — into words. While writing has been the main focus of my tutoring experience, I am also passionate about specific subjects especially History, Psychology, and, of course, Philosophy. As a graduate student preparing for a career in teaching, I have a personal investment in helping students achieve their educational goals. When I’m not studying, I enjoy playing and listening to music, cooking, and film.
