SCHEDULE/LOGISTICS: Unfortunately, I do not offer home tutoring. I tutor at libraries/coffee shops in Jamaica Plain, Brookline or downtown Boston. I have availability Thurs afternoon/evening, Friday afternoon, as well as some weekend availability. Sessions are 1.5 hours, though a first session could be one hour to determine fit.
ABOUT ME: I'm currently a graduate student at Emerson College working towards a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing
. I tutored with Wyzant in my hometown in NJ for the past year and for a national test prep company for three years before that. My passions are language
, and travel.
AS A TUTOR: I tutor all sections of the SAT
as well as SAT II
Writing. I help students with essay
writing (including college application
essays), from brainstorming to outlining to proofreading
. In addition, I also tutor in languages including English
as a Second Language, Spanish
Before Wyzant, I tutored test prep and academic subjects with a national test prep company for the past three years.
My strength as a tutor lies in my patience, thorough questioning of a student's thought process and breakdown of more effective strategies, and a supportive attitude. My students leave with greater confidence and stronger study skills
. Essay writing students learn to expand their idea base and improve the clarity of their writing. Language students develop a greater understanding of grammar
and more confidence in their speaking skills. Students are assigned homework to reinforce what they've learned and I provide periodic progress reports.
BACKGROUND/EXPERIENCE: I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Brown University with concentrations in American Studies and Literary Arts. In addition to my tutoring experience, I have three years of experience teaching English as a Foreign Language
in the US as well as abroad (Chile/Italy).
My time working in education has taught me flexibility and the necessity of creating a strong foundation. I believe that students really learn when they truly understand the principles behind how to do something. Over my years in education, I have developed the resourcefulness to reach students at all levels.
I look forward to hearing from you!
