Hello, prospective students and parents!
Who am I?
I am a 2013 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of a top ten liberal arts college. During my undergraduate career, I studied International Relations, and my coursework included classes in writing, literature, philosophy, psychology, government, history, foreign language (Arabic/French), and other disciplines. I have had extensive experience in research, writing, editing, public speaking, and communications. I have a diverse array of communications-related accomplishments: a publication in a legal journal, a position as Managing Editor of my college newspaper, and a stint in the Communications Department of a leading non-profit organization, just to name a few. I have also had experience teaching and working with students as a camp counselor, a tutor, and a Writing Consultant at my college's Center for Writing and Public Discourse. Most importantly, I am a flexible, creative, organized, and forward-thinking individual who is not afraid to take risks and encourage others to do the same.
What are my methods?
I have the rare (and somewhat embarrassing) qualification of having taken the PSAT twice, the SAT three times (2270 cumulative score), the ACT once, as well as three SAT II Subject Tests (French, Biology, and Literature). Having received tutoring in a variety of group and one-on-one settings for all of the aforementioned tests, I know which methods work. I have devised a unique method for tutoring reading and writing, both for students preparing for the SAT and for those who simply seek improvement in their English language skills. My methods include long-term vocabulary retention, writing self-improvement, and taking tests under timed conditions, and they are highly personalized to reflect each student's individual learning style and preferences.
If you seek a personable and experienced reading/writing tutor, please do not hesitate to contact me!
