My passion for helping students originates from my understanding of how challenging academics can be and how rewarding it feels to achieve academic success, especially after overcoming seemingly insurmountable barriers to learning. I want to help students feel happy and confident about their ability to achieve academic success, and that is why I tutor.

In high school, I volunteered for my community's youth orchestral program for about three years, teaching students aged seven to fourteen how to play instruments and read music. Therefore, I am comfortable working with students of all ages and backgrounds and understand how to help students learn effectively depending on their individual needs and desires. Due to my academic background, I can effectively transfer the tutoring skills I strengthened through volunteering to a different subject area: English, or more broadly, reading and writing.

I am currently a junior at Boston University working toward my Bachelor of Arts in English. Because I am currently a college student, I am intimately familiar with the culture of standardized testing, specifically the ACT and Advanced Placement (AP) tests, and can therefore help students achieve high scores on such tests. Moreover, because my current academic studies primarily focus on reading and writing, I am well-equipped to tutor those subjects. English is my favorite subject to tutor because I love watching students grow more confident in their reading and writing abilities as they progress through their schoolwork. I firmly believe that instilling confidence in students about their ability to read and write well is key to high academic performance: oftentimes, students perform better than they believe they do, so they just need a person to encourage them to believe in themselves, which frequently occurs when they achieve academic success in the individualized setting that is tutoring.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading (big surprise there), listening to music (of all kindsI am probably Boston University's busiest music nerd), and computer gaming (I love The Sims series!).
