As a former international security professional with experience reading and writing in think tanks and research centers for a living, I have a unique ability to analyze information and produce thoughtful, concise literary constructions. My experience successfully maneuvering through the American pre-college standardized and Advanced Placement (AP) testing complexes familiarized me with the organizational skills and learning techniques useful to increase scores.
Relying on analytical writing skills and reading comprehension in fast-paced international security-related posts, including at the United Nations and a national laboratory, I will help your child successfully analyze literature from homework assignments to SAT reading passages. Constructing an array of different written products ranging from essays to policy memorandums to a master's thesis paper has taught me to quickly shift from one writing style and target audience to another.
With professional proficiency in Russian language, I am also happy to help with study of beginner level Russian language.
