In every tutorial setting-- whether it's with master's and PhD candidates, middle school students, or high school students on AP, honors, or regular class levels-- I have always placed the student first. I'm easygoing and friendly, but persistent and focused. I ask questions, but none you can't handle-- or that we can't work through together, without judgement. I go at your pace, but with an urgency that gets results.
My favorite part of tutoring is the process of discovery. When the student reaches an outcome on their own, after a process of inquiry, it's truly a unique and uplifting moment.
In high school I scored a 5 on both the AP Literature and Composition exams. I also scored a 4 on AP US History.
As a student at St. John's University, I was a writing consultant for one of the leading writing centers in the country-- the Institute for Writing Studies, led by Harry Denny (now at Purdue), Tom Philipose, and Alison Perry.
Finally, for the past year I tutored full-time as an AmeriCorps Urban Education Fellow at a charter school in Newark, NJ. I specialized in AP Literature instruction, and was the AP Literature Teacher's Assistant.
