I'm a former high school world history teacher, and a graduate of Columbia Teachers College, where I received a Master's in Social Studies Education and my initial teaching certification for Social Studies in New York State (grades 7-12). Before that, I received Bachelor's degrees in History and Comparative Literature & Society at Columbia University (2020).

Currently, in addition to Varsity Tutors, I work as a literature guide writer for LitCharts, a tutor at Wyzant, and an editor at Cambridge Proofreading & Editing Services.

Before that, I was an online tutor through Chegg Tutors for five years, and taught lessons in U.S. history, European history, world history, American literature, writing, philosophy, psychology, environmental science, international relations, sociology, music, and art, in addition to editing academic essays.

I am passionate about history, literature, and all humanities and social studies subjects. I am also a creative writer (mainly a historical novelist) and love to edit and give feedback other writers' work. I have extensive research and writing experience through my coursework in history, comparative literature, English, and philosophy at Columbia. I received departmental honors in both the History and Comparative Literature & Society departments, and one of my senior theses, "Cities of Defeat: Spanish Civil War Refugees and the French Concentration Camps of 1939" won the Columbia History department's Charles A. Beard Prize as well as the George Watt Prize. I have also received multiple creative writing awards through National YoungArts Foundation and the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. I have reading knowledge of Spanish, French, and German.

Please reach out if you'd like to schedule a lesson in any humanities subject!
