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.
Over five years experience in tutoring for both the AP Art History exam, and the required course work throughout the year. I also provide students with the necessary study materials and teach the skills to succeed in AP Art, as well as any future Art History classes in college.
