I graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University in 2013 with my bachelor's degree in French and Francophone Studies, for which I wrote my thesis on the international art exchanges between Paris, New York and Dakar, Senegal. I also received a Certificate in African Studies from the Universit de Paris 1 - Panthon-Sorbonne and focused my research on the social exclusion of African immigrants in Western Europe. Since graduation, I have worked at a public school in Harlem as the College Counselor working with students from grades 6-12. In my two years of experience, I have had the opportunity to network with college admissions counselors across the country, and I gladly connect my students to any college admissions departments I am familiar with. Although my tutoring specialty is test prep -- SAT, ACT, PSAT, SHSAT, and GRE -- I particularly love tutoring writing, and creative writing is a hobby of mine. My philosophy is that even when we are preparing for a standardized exam, we should always be relating the work to your passions, pursuits, and educational goals to make the work that much more meaningful. In my spare time, you'll often find me learning bits of new languages for fun or writing. I am currently fluent in English and French, conversational in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, and can read some Italian, German, Dutch, and Arabic.
