Several years ago, I graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas with a bachelor's degree in dramatic literature and a minor in math. While at SMU, I worked as a teaching assistant, helping a professor prepare lecture notes, demonstrate key concepts in class, and formulate test questions. I also spent three years on the staff of the student newspaper, including three semesters as an editor, copy editing content and coaching journalists to help them write as effectively as possible. During my time there, I received numerous school wide, regional, national, and international awards.
Since moving to New York, I have put my teaching and coaching experience to use as a professional tutor, working with students of all skill levels and ages. I have helped middle schoolers improve their organizational and study skills. I've coached a Ph.D candidate as he wrote his dissertation, helping with style, grammar, and clarity of content. I've worked with high school students studying for AP and SAT tests in a number of subjects, including history, math, writing, and literature. And I've helped college students write personal statements for graduate school. I even helped one business professional with the planning and structure of his best man speech!
I am committed to the idea that all students have the ability to improve and grow. Whether it's short-term test prep or long-term subject comprehension, I work with each of my clients to develop a personalized plan of action, breaking large goals down into manageable, achievable tasks and holding them accountable. Past students and parents will attest to my effectiveness, patience, conscientiousness, and reliability. I hope to get to know you a little better, and look forward to helping you achieve your full potential.
