I am a graduate from Northwestern University with a major in Film and a minor in English. While I was at school, I had the best experience of my entire academic career doing independent research, writing a paper on the subject, and then teaching fellow students the material. In that one project, I saw just how much harder I was willing to work (and how much better the results were) when I truly cared. A personal connection and goal is the key to succeeding in any subject. In addition, once I stepped to the other side of the desk, I saw how rewarding being a teacher can be.

As a tutor, I see myself your guru - your guide to finding why you can succeed in a given subject. I prefer English because I know that everyone has something to say. Even if you didn't like reading the book, I'm sure you can get on A on the essay. My sessions are informal and fun. I like finding outside materials that can help get the idea flowing. My goal is to increase interest and productivity each time out. If you can improve your mindset, the grades will always follow. I have a unique philosophy on learning, which I feel translates to concrete results. I feel that I can provide effective feedback on writers of any aptitude.

Finally, I know that I'm only half of the tutoring equation, so I will do my best to make myself easy to work with. My schedule is very flexible. Clear communication is of the utmost importance to me, so don't hesitate to get in touch. I strive to be prompt, and I will stay late if needed. I look forward to scheduling a session!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

One of the best ways to improve reading comprehension is to read out loud and read regularly. I would assign reading exercises that help normalize the process.
