I recently graduated from Northwestern University, where I majored in journalism and Middle East and North African Studies. I most recently worked as an investigative journalist and have published over 20 articles this year. I tutored French for four years with Northwestern's Department of French and Italian, and I previously tutored math (from kindergarten to SAT prep) with Mathnasium. I also taught English as a second language through the Paper Airplanes program, which pairs tutors with Syrian refugees for virtual lessons. I gained a DALF C1 in French at the end of a year-long exchange program through Rotary, and I am comfortable tutoring the language at any level. Besides French, I enjoy with students on SAT prep and college application essays. I am passionate about teaching and know what it takes to create a personalized program to help students reach their goals. Outside of tutoring, I'm an avid reader with a particular passion for modern Middle Eastern history, and I love watching cycling and going for bike rides.

Reading and cycling are my biggest passions, but I also love watching football, soccer and hockey. I’m working my way toward fluency in Arabic bit by bit, and I’m currently planning to live in Amman, Jordan, from September 2021 to May 2022. I have a soft spot for musicals after spending half my childhood acting in them, and I enjoy watching French movies and tv shows (even if you’re not learning French, everyone should watch “Les Intouchables”).
