I earned two BAs in Anthropology and Japanese at the University of Rochester in Western New York.

I have been tutoring for the SATs since high school. As an undergraduate, I was a writing coach. When I lived in Japan, I tutored English as well.

Because of the practice I gained as an undergraduate, and as a classroom teacher, I now tutor SAT Critical Reading, Writing, Literacy, History, and Japanese.

Writing is my favorite subject to tutor. I enjoy the fact that even the most dense research assignment asks the writer to take a stand. Very few subjects ask for a student's opinion, but writing asks for just that.

I like guiding students to figuring out the right answer, instead of telling them. Working with students and prompting them to what they need to know allows what they've learned to stick, so they can keep moving and building their understanding. Especially with younger kids, it can be easy just to tell them, but letting them do the work allows them to grow faster than simply telling them how to get the answer.

I'm an avid athlete - volleyball and rowing are my sports of choice. I now travel for one and do the other whenever get the chance.

I'm also a huge reader. Modern Fiction, the Classics, and books about Asia

If the above don't occupy all of my time, I have my favorite shows and Movies, House of Cards, Jurassic Park, Miyazaki films.
