Hello!

I am a Columbia instructor and PhD candidate with 15 years experience in teaching, tutoring, and admissions counseling in New York, Paris, and Rome. Though I currently teach in the university setting, I have worked extensively with students of all ages.

As a specialist in literature and language, I love working with students of English in all its many applications: standardized exam preparation (SAT, GRE, TOEFL), accent reduction, academic writing, literature analysis, and personal essays. I have worked with thousands of students on university applications (undergraduate and graduate and professional school), and can help you create an ideal application package.

I believe that working one-on-one offers an ideal environment for rapid progress, as I can adapt my strategies to meet the needs of each individual student. I believe learning should be fun, and I work hard to ensure that my students gain an enthusiasm and excitement for language!
