I graduated Williams College with a BA in Russian Language and Literature. I currently work as a residential advisor at an international school in Boston, and I really enjoy living and working with ESL students from around the world. During my college years, I gained a wealth of experience tutoring one-on-one, in the classroom, and online. I've helped college students with Russian grammar as a Peer Tutor, provided writing feedback to AP English students at local high schools, worked with homeless children at an after-school program in Brooklyn, and taught full Russian classes at Upward Bound summer schools. I tutor a variety of subjects, but I especially enjoy English, Literature, and SAT verbal. Having published papers and presented at academic conferences, I am eager to share my expertise with academic writing. Beyond fixing grammar and punctuation, I love to help students improve the quality of their analysis, structure and sense of their arguments, and transitions between ideas. I believe that writing skills are crucial, not only for test prep and college admissions, but for finding fulfilling work and support for ideas that matter. In my spare time, I play violin and viola, go running, and travel as much as I can.
