I am agraduate of the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in History (minor in French) and Masters degree in the History of Art and Architecture from Boston University.
I have worked with students of varying backgrounds, abilities, and goals since 2013, having first started with Americorps' College Possible (College Access Program) and then working for several tutoring organizations, focusing on both test prep and academics.
Through these experiences, I have found it most rewarding to help each student realize his or her goal and aid them in accomplishing it with distinction. I enjoy determining the unique approach necessary for each student to succeed.
Furthermore, I am passionate about not only teaching my students the material necessary to improve their scores on standardized tests and their grades in their classes, but also keeping them engaged as they progress through any test prep/academic programs.
As someone who has been working with high schoolers since college, I find that I am able to connect with students on the important process of excelling both in school and on standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, and the AP/SAT Subject Test exams. Though these provide schools with a glimpse into the student, I want to help them put their best foot forward.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife and friends, exploring and relaxing at the nearby beaches, learninghistorical trivia, cooking, and exercise.
