New York University (Communications )
I am an NYU honors graduate of the class of 2009, magna cum laude, with a degree in media, culture and communications. In addition to working in nonprofits and as a political commentator--I've had writing published in The New York Times and The Huffington Post and currently maintain a culture column for FDL. I also have experience in digital strategy, video production, public speaking, and have appeared on a wide variety of national television programs.
I have experience tutoring college students and have found great fulfillment in creating longstanding relationships with mentees over the years. I'm interested in leveraging my skills to help students with essay writing, public speaking, media training, and creative writing with an emphasis on skills, including project management, cultivating your "voice", developing confidence in your perspective and trusting your instincts.
My approach is upbeat, fun, and adjustable. I focus on ensuring student comprehension by prioritizing patience and flexibility.
I'm looking forward to meeting students through WyzAnt, and I hope to hear from you!

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.
I took a class in public speaking at New York University. Additionally, I have been public speaking professionally for the last 5 years. My experience includes: moderating a conference with 1500 attendees, appearing on national television shows on CSPAN, MSNBC and CNN to provide commentary, and delivering speeches to crowds ranging from 10-2000 attendees.
I have written speeches for myself as well as given assistance on speeches for other individuals and feel confident in my ability to help students master their own public speaking challenges.
