I offer test preparation for the SAT and GRE as well as subject lessons for students of all ages. My expertise is in helping students develop high-quality reading and writing skills as well as excel in Algebra I, American history, and government. Alternative topics and arrangements can be made upon request.

I graduated magna cum laude and with high honors from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 2008. I am currently working towards a master's degree in international relations at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

Furthermore, I possess prior teaching and tutoring experience. I taught reading and writing skills to adults during the summer of 2007, for instance, and have tutored both high school and middle school students in Algebra I, American history, and American government. I tailor my approach to each individual student, as I believe that everyone learns in a uniquely personal way. I look forward to developing a program that fits your needs!
