As an honors graduate in History at Columbia University and as a history student on the graduate level at the City University of New York, I have a thorough knowledge of U.S. and global history and geography. My past work as an editor, reporter, writer and interviewer gives me superb communication and writing skills, knowledge of which I can impart to students, and it also gives me great expertise in resolving problems with essay writing, punctuation, grammar, spelling, diction and pronunciation, as well as with test preparation. Having traveled widely, I am at ease dealing with students from a diverse range of backgrounds, as well as to working with students whose native language is not English. I am possessed of great reserves of patience, compassion, understanding, flexibility and an ability to use analogies, cultural and current-event preferences and any kind of outside situational contexts in order to make a point more understandable to a student.
