I am currently an adjunct professor and a graduate student pursing a degree in classical archaeology. I hold a BA in history and an MA in ancient and classical history. After attending college, I worked as a 9th-12th grade humanities teacher and taught 6th-8th grade test prep. With over 3 years of university level teaching experience, including online education, I can assist students in many different courses.
Outside of classroom teaching, I have worked for a number of world-famous museums and have spent the last 4 years tutoring students from top NYC schools such as St. Ignatius, Columbia Prep, Claremont Prep, UNIS, Loyola, Marymount and LaGuardia. Often serving as a “family” tutor, I teach all 3rd-10th grade subjects and also tutor American history, World history, European history, literature, writing, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, biology and algebra. I have extensive experience with AP and IB courses along with the SAT, SAT II’s- literature and history, regents, ISEE and SSAT test prep.
My teaching approach is very unique because it stems from a combination of different teaching experiences and education theory. With younger students, I make learning fun and focus on building core concepts which will help them be better students for life. With my high school students, I tend to focus on becoming an independent learner in preparation for college, teaching students how best to manage their time and efforts for maximum potential. With all students, I frequently utilize the Socratic method and customize my teaching style for each students needs.
Lastly, I also have extensive experience in American and UK college admission process including essays. When I am not tutoring I enjoy traveling, reading historical fiction and playing video games. Last spring, I spent a month traveling Europe after taking part in archaeology digs throughout Turkey.
