I am a NY-based tutoring pro and writing professional. I have had writing jobs for various companies, including Perfectly Frank Inc., LOT 379, and Berkeley. Additionally, I tutor English, Writing Skills, and SAT prep throughout the city. I graduated from Brown University in May 2012 with an English degree. While at Brown, I studied a wide variety of subjects, from history to writing to semiotics, with a central focus on literature and writing. I was awarded a named scholarship and arts award and was active in extracurriculars as a musician, a producer of new work, and an actor. I take tremendous pride in my experiences teaching and tutoring since graduation, and especially enjoy helping pupils reach an understanding and appreciation for new material and transforming their attitude about academics. I want to help my students figure out what it is about each subject that they love. My education at a competitive private high school and my studies at Brown have encouraged a rigorous approach, an attention to detail, and a strong work ethic. I'm a creative, broad thinker who approaches learning with the right balance of challenge and enjoyment. I think curiosity is contagious. Helping pupils identify their truest, most integrated interest in any given subject is the best way to keep them engaged. I look forward to helping you reach your highest potential.

I studied English with a focus on American Literature at Brown University. I am an avid reader and love literature and writing. At Brown, I took classes on Faulkner, Shakespeare, 19th century American literature, the 20th century novel, early American settlers literature, 20th century drama, the postcolonial novel, cultural semiotics, and more. I am patient with pupils and like to keep learning engaging and challenging.


I graduated from Brown with an English degree. I'm a voracious reader and strong writer.

Voice (Music)

I have studied voice classically for 12 years. I attended the Tanglewood Institute's Young Artists Vocal Program in 2007, was a member of Brown's Applied Vocal Program, and have sung for paid gigs in Providence and in my hometown in Massachusetts. I most recently perfomed in an original musical in New York City in July in the lead role. I have studied classical, musical theatre, and jazz singing and am versatile, flexible, and experienced.
