Learning requires discipline, method, and desire. Anyone who has studied languages can attest to this. I hope to help students not only to improve how they study, learn, think, and write, but to learn to love both the material and learning itself. I've been working with students for about a year, and my experience has only made me more certain of this.
In my teaching, I constantly try to elicit the answers from my students by careful questioning, rather than trying to instill knowledge into them. In this way, I help them to think for themselves and not just learn the assigned material but the process they'll need to learn any material.
I attended Fordham College at Lincoln Center in New York City and double majored in Economics and Philosophy, with a minor in political science. After graduating I spent the next three years living and studying in Europe, where I picked up Italian, French, and German. I have near-native fluency in Italian, conversational fluency in French, and know enough German to read it and get around. I am currently a graduate student working on an MA in Liberal Arts at St. John's College.
