EducationI graduated from Yale University in 2011 with a degree in English and a concentration in Creative Writing with a 3.8 GPA. For high school I attended Harvard Westlake in Los Angeles. I received a 2290 on my SAT.
Currently I work as a tutor and a filmmaker. Teaching and learning are passions of mine; I love to help others succeed.
ExperienceI'm a creative thinker who finds fun, engaging approaches to difficult assignments. My teaching style is mentorship-based, meaning ability goes hand-in-hand with appreciation of the subject matter.
I have three years of tutoring experience. My students gone from C students to making As, earned a 2270 on the SAT and qualified for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth program. I have worked with students of all ages and ability levels.
I can help with daily homework, long term assignments, or planning for your academic future. I studied at Yale with some incredible professors (Harold Bloom, David Bromwich and Donald Margulies), and I try to emulate their teaching methods in my tutoring style.
I offer tutoring services in the SAT, SSAT, ISEE, English, History, essay-writing, Latin and Math.
--I have worked as a paid reporter in the past and have edited and conceptualized hundreds of assignments with Yale Daily News reporters. If you need help strengthening your papers or conceiving of compelling arguments, I can draw on years of high-level experience to help you with that.
--Poetry and literature were my main academic areas of focus. I can help you develop as an English student - at any level.
--I spent 7 years studying Latin from middle school through college. I've translated Virgil, Ovid, Cicero and Catullus and still retain a working knowledge of the language by reading Latin poetry and studying it independently. I would love to help you develop a mastery of it.
--I scored a 790 on the Math Section of my SAT and completed all the AP level math courses offered at my high school with straight As.
HobbiesI'm originally from Los Angeles, CA but have spent a lot of time in the South. I love traveling the country by car, biking, watching films, and reading.
I live in Brooklyn but am happy to meet students almost anywhere.
