I am a third-year Ph.D. student in UT Austin's American Studies department. I received my B.S. in Media, Culture and Communication from NYU and my M.A. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon. As a lifelong student, I love to help others enjoy the process of learning and to see their hard work pay off! I'm currently teaching a writing course at UT with the theme, "Americans Abroad." Last year, I taught discussion sections for a UT American literature course, and previously I worked as a teaching assistant for classes on introductory academic writing, U.S. history, and American culture. While I tutor a range of subjects, I especially love demystifying standardized tests and helping students improve their reading and writing skills. I also have expertise in the subject areas of American history and literature. I'm looking forward to working with you to achieve your goals!
