I have always loved teaching, and I started working as a tutor in Math and Science in high school. I now teach a wide variety of subjects from Physics to Essay Writing to Math at every level, as well as standardized testing for SAT and GRE. I love tutoring because it combines two of my favorite activities: tackling complex ideas and engaging with people. It is so special to watch a student grasp a new concept that seemed entirely opaque only a few minutes earlier.

I majored in theater and astrophysics at Columbia University and I am now a playwriting MFA at NYU, one of the best programs in the country (the story of how I transitioned from physics to theater is pretty funny and I???m happy to share it). While my intensive study of advanced Math and Physics helps me tutor those subjects, I find my theater skills are just as valuable to effective teaching. As a playwright, I have learned to explain ideas efficiently, inspire excitement, and connect with an audience. Using these techniques, I hope to make my students not only better at individual subjects, but also help them fall in love with the beauty of new ideas.
