I've been tutoring and teaching in various guises since I graduated from high school in 2007. I've done SAT tutoring and run summer camp programs in Theater and Chess in Massachusetts; helped students improve their English in Romania; and taught Literature, Writing, History, and Theater at a boarding school in India. After my first stint there, I was invited to return and teach on two further occasions, developing a great relationship with the school and its administrators.
While at Yale University, I studied Theater and Middle Eastern Studies, graduating magna cum laude in 2012. Outside of my studies, I wrote current events and cultural critique columns for the Yale Daily News, in addition to extensive work in the theater and comedy scenes. During my senior year, I worked at the Yale College Writing Center, helping ESL students and drop-in clients develop and edit their essays.
Having taught students of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of different settings, I am able to tailor tutoring sessions to individual levels and needs. Whether proofreading college essays on a tight deadline, or teaching expository writing skills over the long-term; cramming French vocab, or working through a Camus short story for an AP class; helping memorize dates, or explaining the broader currents of European history - I aim to be both flexible and efficient regarding students' goals. My interests and skills are wide-ranging, but I also recognize that a tutor is more than a human spellchecker or Wikipedia. Teaching students how to process information (and learning alongside them) are key parts of the tutoring process.
