I am a graduate of the University of Richmond with a major in Psychology and a minor in English. I spent the majority of my college career tutoring fellow students in writing and English. In particular, I worked with students on thesis building, organization, sentence structure, and grammar. I had the privilege of working in the Writing Center as well as handling the writing of entire classes as a Writing Fellow. While I loved the professional aspect of working at the Writing Center, I also enjoyed seeing the same student multiple times and sustaining a personal relationship with them in which they felt comfortable with me. I want all students to gain confidence in their writing ability, especially because I feel that being a good writer is useful in any career path they may choose. I was the Executive Assistant to Ivan Held at Putnam books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).
Currently, I am a Master of Social Work (MSW) student at NYU in New York, NY. For the past two years, I have expanded my English and Writing tutoring to include ACT/SAT Reading and Writing tutoring.
The biggest difference between the ACT and SAT is time; the ACT asks students to answer more questions in less time. I can teach students how to work efficiently and in a timely manner during this exam.
As a Psychology and English major, I have a lot of experience writing both scientific and descriptive essays. I can teach students how to decipher themes in the novels, books, and short stories they read in class. As a following step, I can show them how to adapt what they learn into comprehensive essays.
Learning how to comprehend what you read, especially in high school English classes, can help students become better writers themselves. I am able to help students memorize and understand specific themes in the novels and literature they read for test-taking or other purposes.
It's important that students learn how to understand what they read in this section; the long paragraphs can at first be intimating for SAT-takers. I can teach students how to read calmly and careful during this section of the SAT.
