The root of the word "education" is the verb "to educe," meaning "to draw out." This is my guiding philosophy as a tutor, that it is my job to draw out of my students the best of their natural potential, creativity, and curiosity. I encourage creative problem-solving and a spirit of mutual collaboration and respect between my students and myself. I understand that my job is to ask the right questions and to listen closely enough to enable my students to arrive at their own unique solutions. Having studied Voice, Music Theatre, and Psychology at New York University, I have a passion for understanding the human experience and consider this the core of my endeavors as an educator. In addition to music and the humanities, I share my knowledge of English, Literature, and Writing - both creative and expository - with my students. And having once been an intensely Type-A over-achiever at a competitive New Jersey high school, I have a hard-won knowledge of what it takes to succeed on the SAT, primarily in the Writing and Reading portions of the exam. I hope to work with you soon and help you draw out the best of what you can offer!
