I am not an ordinary college student, and therefore I am not an ordinary tutor! Although in high school I loved learning, having tutored fellow students in subjects like math and English, a lack of mentors and preparation led me to under-perform on standardized tests and in my first year of college. I left school disillusioned with the education system and explored success in a career path instead.

For the last nine years, I have worked for non-profit organizations, teaching activism and civic engagement to people from diverse backgrounds. My strengths are in facilitation and one-on-one skill building. I have worked on two Presidential campaigns and am self-taught in public speaking, community organizing, and international relations.

I have now re-found my love of learning and am proud to have graduated with honors BA/MPA from Columbia University. Columbia's academic rigor challenged and inspired me. I also love the arts, having studied theater, music, and dance growing up. New York City is my home and I love enjoying life here to the fullest!

I look forward to working with you and your child on your tutoring needs. I have a flexible schedule and can tutor a variety of students in diverse subjects, including math, Spanish, writing, and SAT prep. My goal is to empower you with skills and confidence, but most importantly, make learning fun!
