I'm here to help you or your child discover a new love of reading and writing! I tutor all subjects associated with English Literature and Writing (English Lit, Comp, ESL, ADHD and Language Arts). My specialty is in communicating tricky concepts and difficult texts, so that anyone can understand them. There is nothing like seeing a struggling student get more out of their education and also achieve better grades. I am also very committed to helping kids do well on tests and essays, so they can be as well prepared as possible for college applications and the experience of college.

I'm a recent college graduate (had a 3. 77 GPA) all of 22 years old. I will be starting graduate school (English PhD) in the fall, and plan to be an English professor after. Since high school, where I trained in the writing center, I worked with a number of students who struggled with motivation and building the proper skill set. I had tremendous success turning people's attitudes around so that they could get the most out of their education. I have tutored individuals from Kindergarten through to College.Due to my patience and tremendous enthusiasm to see a student become motivated. I have been published in The Boston Review, Hyperallergic, Brooklyn Rail, and a forthcoming book. Additionally, I have a strong creative media background and can teach Film, Sociology, Poetry, and Art History.

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.

Film

In addition to being a filmmaker who has had a solo presentation of my works at Anthology Film Archives, I have a complete knowledge of the history of film. I have written about film for the Brooklyn Rail and also completed a year of Film History at Bard College, that went from silent to the present. I have taken classes in experimental film history. Not only do I love film and film history but I love teaching it to others, and have many ways to organize that history so that it can be easily memorized.

Public Speaking

Since graduating college I have read or performed at Berl's Poetry Salon, the Poetry Project, Cage Gallery, Bureau of General Services Queer Division and Segue. All of these events have had at least 50 members in attendance. I have exemplary confidence with public speaking and am able to help others through a tutoring that helps to point out weak spots and build strength to make the most seamless public speech possible.

Social Studies

I have received an A in multiple social studies classes and have written on economics, cultural history, and anthropology in professional journals. When I have tutored (at Bard college) it was in English and Social Studies. I am able to help students grasp the fundamentals of writing papers in Social Studies and to excel beyond to a college level ability.

Video Production

I have directed two narrative features. The first played in a solo presentation of my work at Anthology Film Archives. I know how to use all HD cameras and am able to teach all of Adobe's post-production suite (after effects, premiere etc). And also Final Cut Pro and iMovie. I was a film major in college where I received the Sidney Peterson filmmaking award, named after the legendary avant-garde filmmaker.
