A good rule of thumb when wondering about what I tutor is that if there's an English class, I'm tutoring it at every educational level! I also tutor in IB Theatre, Essay Editing, Performing Arts, and Spelling Bee. My absolute favorite subject to tutor in is Essay Editing. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to have so many great ideas floating around in your head and struggle to put those ideas to paper, and it brings me a lot of joy to help a student's voice shine through their writing in the best way it can. I have been editing essays for the past 10 years (yes, since I was a tween!), and I extended that tutoring to students in other non-editing areas about two years ago when I started tutoring college students and their middle school siblings in reading comprehension. I am passionate about helping students because I love knowing that I am an indelible part of improving someone's education. I have seen firsthand how education changes lives and impacts futures, and it gives me great pride to help facilitate that change in other students. My tutoring style is very hands-on and conversational. The wonderful blessing (and occasional curse) of English and writing is that there's usually more than one correct answer to everything. I always listen to the student and make sure there is room for open discussion about the best ways to convey an idea or solve a problem.
I graduated from Wellesley College in 2019 with a B.A. in History and Gender Studies. My dream is to get my M.F.A in Lighting Design. I am a professional theatrical lighting designer by trade who has worked in theaters all over the USA. When I'm not hanging from the ceiling focusing a stage light, I can usually be found working on the play I'm writing, kayaking, or taking long nature walks.
