This school year, could your child use a little extra help, or a push to get ahead?

A tutor is just what you need!

I am an internationally-published journalist, available to tutor your child.

I attended Boston University Academy, and graduated from Boston University with a journalism degree in just three years. I have worked in the US, the UK, and spent a year writing for an educational children's television program in Australia.

I have experience tutoring, and have worked with children for over ten years.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

SAT Reading

To increase a student's SAT Reading score, I work on building the student's active reading skills. By asking particular questions as we work through reading passages, I prepare my student to answer the questions before they even see them, by identifying the theme, tone, and other important aspects of the passage. By investing time in the reading, a student is able to more quickly answer the questions.

All of my SAT and SSAT reading students have improved their score, even after just a few lessons.

SAT Writing

I increase students' SAT Writing scores by focusing on frequently-asked grammar questions, as well as test-taking strategies. To build confidence on the essay section, I cover strategies for coming up with solid examples, the key to a great essay.

With a combination of test-taking strategies, vocabulary review, and grammar instruction, I have helped all my students significantly improve their SAT Writing scores.
