I developed passion for the humanities at an early age and have since studied literature--everything from Chaucer to contemporary works--at Barnard College, Columbia University, and University of Oxford. I will receive my B.A. in May 2018. I have also worked in the Barnard Admissions office since my freshman year and was selected to be a Senior Interviewer for 2017-18; my experience in admissions has given me valuable insight into the college application process.
I believe that anyone can be a great writer and enjoy helping students articulate thoughtful, sophisticated, and creative ideas on paper, whether for an analytic paper or college application essay. In tutoring sessions, I encourage students to reflect upon their reading experience and get ideas on paper. I also work with students to develop a comprehensive understanding of literary devices and writing mechanics, which can help with both standardized tests and school assignments.
I am a patient and kind teacher but am also able to challenge students. In addition to studying, tutoring, and working in Admissions, I enjoy acting, singing, writing, and hiking and volunteer with Camp Kesem, a summer camp for children affected by a parent's cancer.
