Do you need help with college or graduate school admissions- brainstorming and refining admissions essays, filling out applications, and/or preparing for admissions interviews?? Students whom I have helped to create and edit their application essays now attend top universities, such as Columbia, George Washington, Johns Hopkins, Maryland, NYU Stern, Penn State, Purdue, SUNY Binghamton, and Wisconsin. I draw upon a wide variety of materials and techniques, customized to fit student needs.

For several years, I interviewed applicants to Georgetown. After earning a master’s in humanities education at Columbia, I apprenticed for a year under an internationally-renowned college admissions author and consultant. Currently, I teach English at a local private school during the day and tutor in the evening.

I would love to help you maximize your success in the higher education admissions frenzy! Thank you for considering my services!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

After graduating from Georgetown, I was asked to interview and evaluate freshmen applicants to my alma mater. Eventually, after serving as an internship coordinator, I figured out my graduate degree goals and chose Columbia. Following grad school, I worked for Johns Hopkins CTY, started to tutor successfully, and taught on LI, but was encouraged to consider becoming a college admissions consultant. As a result, I spent a year conducting research for and learning the business from a prominent college admissions consultant and author before going out on my own. My clients last year were accepted by excellent colleges and universities, including Johns Hopkins, Maryland, NYU Stern, Maryland, Penn State, and Wisconsin.

Common Core

This is my second year tutoring students for the new NYS Common Core English Regents. My students did quite well on short notice last year during the initial offering.

English

Looking for a trained and experienced literacy (reading and writing) instructor at the 9-12 level?

This will be my third year preparing students for the ELA portions of the ACT and SAT, as well as my second year preparing students for the new Common Core grade 11 English exam and for the GRE.

If your student is taking AP English Literature, please consider my services as well. An avid reader, I aced the AP English Literature exam and continued to study literature from a variety of cultures in college. I have also tutored students taking the AP English Language exam.

Before becoming a tutor, I retook the SAT twice, scoring in the high 700s in both Critical Reading and Writing. All of my students' test scores have risen under my tutelage.

Political Science

I have experience tutoring U.S. Government and teaching International Relations and Comparative Government courses. As a former Congressional intern, Congressional employee, and staff member at a public policy organization, I am quite familiar with how our own government works! In addition, my college minor in International Affairs included coursework on the U.S. government, on democratization efforts around the world, on political philosophy, and on several other forms of government, both past and present. While a graduate history and education student at Columbia, I also took a course on the US Constitution.

Study Skills

One of the most important tasks when providing tutoring is to identify the best study techniques for a particular student. Not only do I have experience helping Regents and AP students to improve their social studies study skills and raise their grades, during graduate school I was trained in a variety of successful methods to use when learning and trying to remember historical information. This training and experience enables me to help each of my students identify their most beneficial study technique(s).

Writing

I can help you to write better history essays (DBQ, FRQ, thematic, CCOT, Comparative, etc.); research, format, and analyze data for research papers (history, government, or psychology); and write school admissions statements. My research, analysis, and writing skills were honed at Georgetown and Columbia, plus in a few extra graduate courses at William & Mary.
