I am a senior at MIT majoring in Writing with a specialization in Digital Media. I have also completed a minor in Business Management. As one of ten writing majors at a school full of people pursuing science and technology rather than humanities subjects, I have taken a default position as tutor for anyone struggling with any writing assignments. I have helped fellow college students on a wide variety assignments ranging from analytic papers on race in the media, to papers on scientific theories, to scholarship essays. In high school I was a Link Crew tutor for three years, making myself available for tutoring sessions after school for whatever subject students required help in.

But enough about my qualifications. If you are looking for a tutor, you probably want someone who will not only help you meet and exceed your own goals, but also someone you can connect and get along well with. So here are some fun facts about me:
-Before college I traveled around Europe with two friends and we visited every art gallery we could find
-I am in the process of writing a full-length screenplay for my thesis in writing
-I love tea, cats, crime novels, and gluten free pizza
-I am a fan of Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Breaking Bad
-I have met Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I have always believed in the importance of the ability to get help in education. Going to class is only a small part of receiving an education--it also includes taking time to discuss, contemplate, and internalize the material. It is often very helpful for students, even those who excel in school, to have a tutor to reach out to in order to discuss new material. I want to help students not only reach their goals, but also exceed them and set new ones. There is nothing more satisfying than helping someone achieve more than they ever thought possible.
