I am a compassionate, patient teacher with a sense of humor. I graduated from Princeton University in 2012 with a degree in English Language and Literature. I apply all my knowledge, skills, and care to every student I teach -- without fail.

I have experience teaching students of all ages --from seven to seventeen years old. My teaching philosophy is built upon the belief that all students are full, complex individuals with unique learning styles. The way I see it, the key elements of successful teaching are excellent listening skills and enthusiasm for one's subjects.

As an English literature major, I’ve received numerous awards for my writing. Language is one of my passions, and my communication skills (both oral and written) are one of my greatest strengths. I gained some journalistic experience writing for the Daily Princetonian, and my writing has been honed through extensive academic and creative work as well. My attention to detail and my active engagement with every text I encounter have served me well at Princeton and throughout my life.

My knowledge-base is broad however. I attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, where I completed my independent research in the area of biotechnology. I have a solid science background and a grasp of a variety of subjects. Best of all, I apply myself to every single challenge -- every time!

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.

Study Skills

As a graduate of Princeton University with a 3.87 GPA, I know what it takes to stay organized and focused. I have developed the ability to read efficiently and effectively by retaining what's most important, and I am an expert at planning, drafting, and editing essays of every length and style. My time management skills were honed to perfection during my time at Princeton. I teach all my students to focus on what's essential, use their time to the fullest, and -- most importantly -- *enjoy* the learning experience!
