Hello!

I am a Harvard graduate student who is eager to help students in several areas: English, writing, French, and philosophy.

I am a fully bilingual French-English speaker: I lived in France between the ages of ten and eighteen, and I received highest honors at the French Baccalaureate examination.

At Harvard College, I worked as a peer French tutor and helped students with written and verbal skills.

As a graduate student in philosophy at Harvard University, I have taught courses in the philosophy department and in general education. My teaching has included one-on-one meetings about written assignments; I have helped students brainstorm topics, organize, and develop arguments for papers, and edit their work.

I look forward to bringing my tutoring and teaching experience to students in the Boston area!

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.

English

I am a native English speaker who loves reading and writing.
I can help you gain the English language skills that will help you enjoy reading and writing and pass examinations.

French

I am a fully bilingual French speaker. I lived in Paris for eight years, passed the baccalauréat with highest honors (Mention Très Bien). I have experience tutoring French: I served as a peer tutor in college.

Grammar

As a native English speaker, I am familiar with English grammar and know grammatical terminology and concepts.

Literature

I studied English Literature in high school and am familiar with many of the classics. As an undergraduate, I continued to take literature classes and particularly enjoyed a course on literature and existentialism.

During my graduate studies, I taught for a class called "Human Being and the Sacred in the History of the West": we studied literature from a philosophical perspective and read The Odyssey, Aeschylus, Dante's Divine Comedy, and Moby Dick.

Philosophy

I was first introduced to philosophy in my senior year of high school and have loved the subject ever since. I earned a BA in philosophy from Harvard College and am working toward a PhD there, too. I have worked with world famous contemporary philosophers, and I have experience teaching undergraduates in philosophy. I am open to teaching people of all ages and degrees of familiarity with philosophy.

Proofreading

As a former editor for the Harvard Review of Philosophy, I have extensive experience editing and proofreading academic articles. Please let me know if you need any help editing papers or applications!

Reading

Do you need tips on improving your reading skills? I offer strategies that will help you with your reading comprehension.

Vocabulary

I am an avid reader who has a wide vocabulary and a real interest in helping others expand their vocabulary.

Writing

I have enjoyed writing from a young age and would love to transmit that love to other students. I majored in philosophy as an undergraduate at Harvard and am familiar with the demands of academic writing in college and in preparation for college.
I am now working towards a PhD in philosophy. As a graduate student, I have worked with undergraduates preparing papers for courses in philosophy. I have two years of experience advising students on writing.
