I am a graduate of Vassar College, cum laude, with a degree in history and theater. I am also a graduate of the International Baccalaureate full diploma program. I have worked with children for over a decade, as a children's theater director, program director, acting teacher, private coach, and academic tutor.
I bring a passion for learning to every child I have the opportunity to work with. I believe that sparking interest and a pleasure in the act of learning is the key to a successful academic career. I am very creative in the tools I use as a tutor but I balance that with an understanding of the rigorous academic setting students face and I keep my focus on a results driven plan.
As a graduate of the International Baccalaureate program I can not only tutor in specific subjects but also help prepare students for their IB or AP exams. I tutor AP US History, AP World History, AP English Lit, SAT II Subject tests in History and English, AP Art History and I help prepare students for any IB exams as well. I bring not only my 4.0 academic record from Vassar College, but also my continued academic journey as a student. I have continued to take adult education courses since my graduation in subjects I am passionate about to keep my skills sharp and to continue to learn.
I would describe myself in the same way I describe my teaching. There is a certain satisfaction that comes from getting an A on a paper and having memorized the information. There is an even greater satisfaction from truly learning and acquiring knowledge.
