I attended Mamaroneck High School and graduated as a member of the National Honor Society. From there, I went to Emerson College to pursue my BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing where I took several intensive literature, analytical writing, creative writing, and public speaking courses. My concentration was in fiction writing and analysis. I also minored in Marketing Communications where I studied social media marketing and web analytics.
At both institutions, I was able to tutor several students in English mechanics, reading comprehension, analytical writing, essay structure, and story analysis and composition. Most of my experience in tutoring has revolved around helping older students particularly 11th and 12th graders, and freshman and sophomore undergraduates, but I have also tutored 9th and 10th graders.
My favorite subject to tutor is literary analysis! I love talking about stories and helping students identify themes and literary elements, and I am passionate about making sure students understand stories within the historical contexts in which they were written.
As for tutoring style, I am all about understanding - both as an instructor, and as a student. I want to understand my student's abilities, struggles, and passions as best as I can, so that I can more effectively help them find themselves in their work and accomplish it to the best of their ability. My style revolves around verbal communication and problem-solving, and emphasizes these qualities in a team setting. I will work with my students in a manner that bolsters their self-confidence and academic independence as I firmly believe these are qualities that lead to a successful academic life.
When I am not reading, writing, or tutoring, I enjoy baking, knitting, and drawing. I have a passion for comics and graphic novels, and I probably watch things on Netflix too often. I believe in the power of communication through art, and I love talking about it!
