I love helping students solve problems and gain confidence. My approach is methodical but allows room for creativity and will always focus on growing skills in the areas that most need improvement.I believe that anyone will improve through tutoring, and my job is to understand the student and to quickly adapt my approach in order to best guide the student in mastering the material while also reinforcing good study habits.

I have more than 1,000 hours of one-on-one tutoring experience, mostly with high school students, but also have worked with middle and elementary school learners. I am very familiar with test prep, including ACT and SAT, as well as private school entrance exams like HSPT, SSAT, and ISEE.My focus is on the verbal sections of these exams, e.g., reading, writing, grammar, language skills, and essays. I also have experience helping students draft college entrance application essays and resumes, and I enjoy the writing process from brainstorming to editing and revising to help the student best tell his or her story.

In addition to test prep and essay writing, I can also assist with English, Geography, History and humanities in general. I have a broad liberal arts background and received a degree in Sociology from Beloit College. Outside of academics, I love music, often singing in choirs or small ensembles, and sometimes playing piano. I also like to get outside when the weather is nice and take photos to add to my large outdoor/travel photo collection.
