I've been a tutor for 5+ years, with expertise in teaching literature, writing, study skills, and other liberal arts subjects. I'm based in Manhattan where I'm working on a doctorate in English literature.
In addition to private tutoring, I've worked in two university Writing Centers and at a Learning Disabilities program at a private liberal arts university. These positions make me uniquely qualified to guide students through all stages of the writing process and challenge them to think critically as they approach their assignments. I also have 3+ years of experience working with students with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and autism.
Since my major field is English literature and writing, about 85% of my tutoring work is devoted to teaching material related to this subject area. That being said, I spend time each week tutoring students in Western Civ and related liberal arts subjects. My goal as a tutor is to teach critical thinking and develop students' reading comprehension and analytical abilities, so I approach all subjects with these goals in mind. I also focus on helping students with time management and study skills.
I also help students prepare for the Reading and Writing portions of the SAT exam and the Verbal portion of the GRE exam.
I approach tutoring as I do teaching. This means that I expect my students to be prepared for tutoring sessions and to work hard. I am patient and compassionate, but I want students to learn and develop their skills for the long-term. As a result, I believe tutoring sessions should be give-and-take dialogues that allow for critical thinking and productive writing.
Typically, I work with students in high school, college, graduate school, and beyond. However, I can accommodate my tutoring style for any age group.
I'm very passionate about tutoring and I've had a lot of previous success with my students. I care about my students and want them to learn and develop through our work together. Please contact me with any questions.
