I have a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a minor in African-American Studies from Harvard College, and I am currently in my 2L year at New York University School of Law. I took the LSAT recently in December 2015 and am eager to share the lessons learned in my own studying to help others with this challenging test.
Before I focused in on law, much of my work and volunteer experience was in teaching. During a gap year between high school and college, I taught ESL both at a summer camp and in an elementary school setting to over 500 schoolchildren in China. During my summers in college, I also worked at an educational summer camp for underserved youth in Boston where I first taught a classroom of 9-year-olds and later supervised instruction and curriculum development for the entire camp of 70 children. I also served as a one-on-one tutor/mentor to high school-aged students during the academic year.
One of my supervisors at the summer camp referred to me as a "translator" who improved communication between other staff members, and I hope to play a similar role in translating the specialized language of the LSAT for my students at Varsity Tutoring. I believe in patient, organized, and methodical learning, so for any students who would benefit from it, I'd love to help form a long-term study plan and to share my step-by-step methods for learning the skills necessary for each of the LSAT's three sections. In my own studying, I became very familiar with the best LSAT study books and online resources and also created my own spreadsheets/binders/calendars for organized study, and I look forward to sharing those with my students. I love questions asking them and answering them, and I believe in positive reinforcement and realistic goal setting. While I will hold you to a high standard of clear thinking and understanding the material, we will move at whatever pace you need.
My interests include social justice, racial justice, running, good food, and organic farming. I look forward to working with you!
