I specialize in reading and writing tutoring and test prep for students Kindergarten - college level. I have a MA in Global Studies from the University of California Berkeley, and a BA in Ethnicity, Race and Migration from Yale University. While in graduate school, I facilitated classroom discussions, which involved lesson planning, writing short response papers, and critiquing my classmates' responses. While working for a Professor at Yale Law School on my honors thesis, I learned key writing and editing strategies, such as reverse outlining. My professors have empowered me to approach writing with intention and clarity, and I bring this deep knowledge to my tutoring practice.

My academic experience has given me the skills to help students on their homework, including longer term papers and thesis writing, and prepare students for the COMPASS Reading and Writing Comprehensions, ISEE, ACT and SAT reading and writing sections, and the GRE verbal section. My teaching methods are adaptable and tailored to the learning styles of each student. Some of my methods are learning games, practice problems, memorization, learning by example, and reverse teaching. In my tutoring practice, I value patience, creative learning, and short and long-term goal setting. With older students, I can offer support and guidance during the research, writing, and editing processes. If relevant, I will give students homework between sessions to practice vocabulary, increase understanding of certain concepts, and/or become familiar with test materials. The tutoring relationship is like a coaching relationship; I will give students the skills they need to be the best readers and writers possible, and I will ultimately help students take responsibility of their own learning. I look forward to connecting with you!
