Hello! I am a 2nd year graduate student in NYU's Tisch Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program (I'm a book writer/lyricist, but I also compose music on the side). I received my BA from Yale University.

I love to tutor and have tutoring experience in a wide range of areas: English, writing, SAT prep, French, history, and math. In addition, I've taught songwriting and piano lessons at several summer camps (Camp Arena Stage, Boston Children's Theatre, and Summer Sonatina International Piano Camp).

I'm organized, responsible, and enthusiastic, and I find it incredibly rewarding to work one-on-one with kids and teenagers to help them improve in different areas. I'm a firm believer that creativity makes learning infinitely easier (not to mention, more fun). I've put this theory into practice: e.g., throughout high school, I wrote songs to help study for tests, and I studied for AP US History by pasting construction paper diagrams and pictures all over the walls and ceiling of my bedroom so that I'd unconsciously absorb information. I love to come up with creative ways to teach and tutor.

My schedule is fairly flexible this year, and I'm looking to do as much tutoring as possible.
