I have been tutoring students from elementary grades through college for the past 8 years. I am extremely patient but at the same time I expect my students be serious and focused in their studies. I believe that with hard work and practice almost all students can achieve academic success.

I have a special expertise in helping middle and high school students with expository writing and I have developed a fairly extensive curriculum to help them build the writing skills that they will need in college.

I can work on a short or long term basis.

I am an alumna of Wellesley College where I earned a B.A. in Cognitive Science.

Note for parents of special needs students: I have worked with special needs students including blind students and students with mild forms of autism. I do not have special needs certification, but I bring several years of intensive experience.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I have been working with special needs students for eight years. For the past two years, I have worked daily with a teenage boy who is diagnosed with highly functional autism. His symptoms are the same as Aspergers in addition to a slight learning disability which is usually not present in people with Aspergers. I assist him with all of his academic work. In addition, I create and supervise independent learning activities, including research and writing projects, theatre arts, music, and foreign language lessons. I am very knowledgable and well read on working with students on the autism spectrum and Aspergers.


I have been tutoring an autistic child five days a week for the past year. I help him with his homework assignments. I also create independent study projects from building models to writing and performing plays.

Because each child's symptoms and cognitive abilities are unique, I would need to discuss a child's needs with his or her parents to see if there was a good fit.


I am a very experienced cook with special knowledge of classic French cooking cuisine and techniques including sauces and stocks. I also enjoy teaching kids basic fun foods like pizza and pasta with a focus on healthy choices. I like to make seasonal and holiday specialties.


I have been a sewer since I was young child. I can sew everything from draperies to Halloween costumes to evening wear. I especially enjoy finding the fabric that will best suit a pattern. I am currently sewing a dress for my daughter using a 1920's pattern from France.

Special Needs

I have worked with blind students for several years providing assistance in college level science, economics, English, and math courses. I also created elementary and middle school level science curriculum appropriate for blind students and ran a summer camp for blind students.

Study Skills

I have been working for several years to help students who have either physical or cognitive disabilities improve their study skills. I currently work with a high school student on a daily basis with his homework including short and long term assignments. I help students learn how to organize their work and to manage their time more effectively.
