I attended Case Western Reserve University for two years before transfering to Boston College, where I obtained a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Film Studies in 2011. Hailing from a family of visual and recording artists, I've been a lifelong student of the arts since before I entered grade school and continue to have an equal passion for literary, visual and the performing arts. I translated my lifelong passion for the arts into a study of cinema in college with a concentration on film analysis & critique, production development and screenwriting. I am currently working on my first feature-length screenplay since leaving college.

I've been a tutor for the majority of my academic life, starting in grade school where being perennially ahead of the class turned into a steady assignment of tutoring my fellow classmates during and after school. I've always had a voracious love of learning, and over the years it has been very rewarding to help encourage intellectual curiosity in my tutorees as well as help them to enjoy learning as an everyday skill. Specifically as student at The Brearley School during my time in middle and high school, I tutored Kindergarten kids in Reading and Writing as a volunteer at a local UES public school. In college, I tutored incoming freshman in remedial English and essay writing, as well as in English Classical Literature. Post college, I have helped several students prepare for standardized tests (ISEE, SAT IIs, SATs) and have helped students write captivating, stand-out college application essays.

While I am proficient in tutoring a broad number of subjects, I am most passionate about writing (creative & essay writing), reading/reading comprehension, Literature, and History. I am also a very competitive person, and as a student I was very proficient at taking tests due to the inherent competitive nature of standardized test-taking. In general, I believe that a little healthy competition can be a great way to motivate students as well as build their confidence in themselves; I love to help students develop strategies for efficient, tactical, high-performance test-taking. I try to use competition to help students harness their own potential and channel it into aptitude levels they never knew they could achieve.
In the end, while my teaching style is very results-driven, I strive to build a trust and easy-going rapport with students early on so that the process of learning feels less like a chore and more like an exciting journey they are going on with a trusted friend and/or guide.
