My main areas of speciality are French and English writing, reading, and grammar. In addition to scoring perfectly on the SAT Writing and Verbal sections, I have completed graduate-level coursework and an honors thesis at Northwestern University. Having lived and worked in Paris, France, I am capable of teaching French comprehension and structure with confidence and a great deal of experience.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe strongly in assessing strengths, and using these areas of strength and confidence in a subject to master trickier concepts. Overall, mine is a confidence and positivity-based approach that encourages and facilitates my students' discoveries of answers in a way that feels less like being instructed and more like gaining mastery through their own abilities.
