I am a graduate of Yale University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in History (with a focus on American history) and Film & Media Studies (with a focus on production). I have enjoyed working with young people for many years. My first official tutoring experience started before high school, when I worked with a number of students at my synagogue to prepare for their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs over the course of five years. I was also a camp counselor for seven summers, overseeing kindergartners and first graders. In college, I coached debate at a local high school, working with students on their current events knowledge, public speaking skills, and argumentation strategy. My favorite field of study is history, and I love taking through historical narratives and exploring how events led to one another and fit into a broader context. I also have a deep love of literature (having been a voracious reader since early childhood) and find math fun as well. I think helping people figure out a concept or learn how to approach a problem or type of question is a really exciting experience, and I love seeing the moment when it ???clicks" for them. I also try to emphasize general applications of a principle or strategy, since learning is about so much more than being able to answer the specific questions on an exam. My other hobbies and interests include watching and making movies, reading, biking, hiking, and listening to and playing music (which I did as a trombone player in the Yale Precision Marching Band for four years).
