I love helping students because regardless of the subject or the student's level, I end up learning so much from them!

I taught political science to undergraduates in (face-to-face) classrooms for almost 15 years and have taught ESL and college essay writing both in face-to-face and online modes.

My BA is in Hispanic Lit (Bryn Mawr College); my MA, in Latin American Studies (School of Advanced International Studies at The Johns Hopkins University); and my PhD, in Political Science (MIT).

I can tutor political science and social studies at all levels. American Politics, Comparative Politics, and Writing are my favorite subjects. Why? Mostly because I am a die-hard, political junkie, and I am in awe of the power of the written word and how well-chosen vocabulary and syntax can be so persuasive.

My teaching philosophy is: listen to the student to understand what they need and what motivates them.

Volunteering is an important part of my life. I am co-managing a street art project that portrays the struggles of people who were formerly incarcerated or are doing alternative sentences. I also assist Brazilian students who come from poor families with their applications to US universities.

Hiking, walking my dog, traveling to deserted beaches and trails, and reading are high on my list of favorite things to do.
