I tutor SAT, PSAT, AP World, AP US History, AP Euro, French, Literature, English, Writing Skills/Essay Writing, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Calculus AB and BC, and AP Art History. I particularly love tutoring History and English/Literature, and helping with essay writing. I'm drawn to those topics myself, they are the things I am most passionate about, and therefore the things I love to teach and the subjects in which I love to share what knowledge I have. I believe enthusiasm goes a long way, and that some of my best teachers have been the ones who loved their subjects the most.
My tutoring style is interactive. I take an approach that constantly asks my students to explain things to me, talk me through how to work through problems, and say things in their own words. I believe that this is the way in which a student's learning can be best assessed throughout lessons, and I also believe this method forces students to really and deeply understand the things that they are learning.
I received my high school degree from Centennial High School in Frisco, Texas. I'm currently in the process of receiving my bachelors in Political Science from Yale University. I began tutoring my sophomore year of high school, when I tutored Geometry and Algebra as part of a volunteer program at my high school. My junior and senior year, I tutored in Algebra II. During the year, I operate as an informal tutor to my family and friends, coaching my little sister through speeches, AP World History, the PSAT, and English. I also spend a lot of time reading through college application essays and proofreading general application essays. In addition to my tutoring experience, I have taught workshops on health education for high school-age kids in inner-city schools in New Haven, and given tours to small children (elementary to middle school-age) at the Dallas Museum of Art as a Teen Docent.
Outside of school, I love to write and to perform. I am spending the summer focusing on writing, specifically long-form personal essays and articles. In high school, I did Speech, Interp and Debate, and did a lot of competitive acting and preforming and speaking through that. In college, I have been given the privilege of combining those interests I am part of a sketch comedy troupe that allows me to combine my interests through writing and preforming my own sketches, as well as workshopping the sketches of other members of my troupe. Beyond that, I absolutely love podcasts: I've been obsessed with NPR's politics podcast lately, and (of course) This American Life, Radiolab, and Serial.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to be as understanding as possible--to try to see what a student isn't fully comprehending, where their weaknesses lie, and build a program tailored to that. As such, my teaching strategy varies from person to person.
