I am a graduate of Tulane University where I studied English, Russian, and Medieval Studies. I have focused on literature and writing throughout my academic and journalistic career. I have written on subjects as wide-ranging as theater, agriculture, poetry, natural disasters, politics, and philosophy. As a tutor, I try to bring my love of writing to the study of language.
I have been a tutor and a classroom teacher for four years, and my passion for education has taken me around the world. Some of my favorite tests to help students prepare for are those which combine language and history. I believe in bringing out what is most fascinating in the AP English and AP History programs: the stories and passions that can bring the subject material to life.
As an LSAT tutor I believe in the tireless and rigorous application of methods. The tests can both be very rewarding if one understands the laws behind the questions. I believe that preparation should focus on creating strategies and methods that respond to these laws. My LSAT students develop a toolbox to address each type of question, and they develop the perspicuity to discern which question requires which approach.
New York is my home, and when I am not teaching, I like to ride my bicycle down its broad avenues and tortuous alleys. I have been to many countries and studied many languages, but there is one place I always return, for better or for worse, and I am happy to offer my services to its students.
