I've gained over ten years of teaching and tutoring experience at all levels, from elementary school to high school and university. Over the course of this time, I've tutored many elementary, middle, high school and college students privately in subjects ranging from mathematics to writing to standardized test prep (SAT/GRE). I am also a published writer, with essays and articles appearing in Foreign Policy Magazine, the Oxford Encyclopedia, and other publications. In addition, I worked for two years as a foreign language instructor at the University of Washington, conducting my own class of undergraduate and graduate students, while completing my Masters Degree there. Most recently, I worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Columbia University in the City of New York while working on my PhD. I have also completed a number of teaching workshops at the University of Washington and Columbia University, as well as a course in pedagogy. Throughout this time, I continued to tutor K-12 students as well, and am comfortable working with students of all ages. Most importantly, however, I absolutely love working with students, and have a sincere passion and enthusiasm for teaching. I consider it a challenging calling, but one that has been immensely gratifying, both personally and professionally. I look forward to meeting and exploring how we can achieve your educational goals together!
