I'll be your go-to tutor for writing, reading, and a range of humanities and social science subjects. I have a PhD from Princeton in cultural anthropology and extensive experience teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. I also work with high school and gifted students. People say I'm a good tutor because I'm a good listener. If we work together, I'll be listening closely to what you're thinking about, struggling with, and trying to accomplish in your academic pursuits. It'll be hard work but a lot of fun, too.

I'm a serious amateur singer-songwrtier! I've been writing and recording songs since I was a kid and I have a fantasy of being a rock star when I grow up.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I'm a Socratic at heart. That means I believe in asking questions to get us thinking critically. Sometimes asking the right question is even better than giving the right answer!
