As a high school student, I received ACT tutoring in both a classroom setting, as well as one-on-one. I saw improvements in my score, and I believe the improvement was a result of the information and test-taking skills that I learned in these tutoring sessions. My scores allowed me to attend Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, where I further solidified my test-taking skills as a Neuroscience major.
Throughout high school and college, I held a number of jobs working with children and adolescents, and I believe I have a skill set that allows me to excel at tutoring. I have worked as a private homework tutor, a camp counselor, a music teacher, and various other teaching positions. I enjoy working with teenagers, and I am confident in my ability to convey important academic ideas, as well as test-taking tips. I encourage openness with all of my students, and strive to create an environment that is both comfortable and challenging for students.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I encourage openness, and I try to create an environment in which students are comfortable asking questions, while still challenged academically.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In my first session with a student, I like for us to get to know one another, understand the specific areas that a student wants to focus on, and create a concrete plan for us to tackle those areas. Additionally, I like to focus on specific goals for us both to work toward.
