I am currently a graduate student at New York University studying Economics. I did my undergrad in my home state at the University of Georgia, where my academic curiosity led me to choose a wide variety of classes that could be described as either "well rounded" or "deeply unfocused." After four years and three semesters abroad, I left with degrees in English and Economics and a minor in Ecology.
I am flexible in what I can tutor, but I am particularly adept with usage for both academic and personal writing and with standardized testing. I have been editing informally for friends, classmates, and coworkers for as long as I can remember, and I endeavor to guide a writer's ability to analyze, organize, and captivate while encouraging his or her strengths. I began taking standardized tests with the ITBS in kindergarten and took at least one per year through grade school including ten AP exams and the PSAT with which I became a National Merit Scholar. I've learned that testing well requires as much skill as it does knowledge, and I look forward to helping students learn to recognize the type of questions testers create so that they can better figure out how to find the right answer.
In my free time, I like sewing (very poorly), yoga, soccer, and pining after various adoptable animals around the City.
