I have a bachelor's degree from Columbia University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Psychology. As an undergraduate, I worked as a Writing Fellow at Barnard College, and tutored students in writing of all genres from across all disciplines. At the same time, I tutored reading and math at several elementary schools in Harlem. I also have experience teaching ESL, Hebrew, and French. As someone with a natural affinity for the arts, I know for myself what it's like to need clear and sometimes creative instruction in math, which is why my methods are flexible, fun, and get results.

I currently work as a radio producer. I have worked all of my professional life in media production and education-- fields that require knowledge of how best to communicate with diverse audiences. No matter how comfortable I am in the classroom teaching grammar, algebra or French, one-on-one tutoring will always be my preference.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

I took French throughout elementary, middle and high schools, and completed the French curriculum at Barnard College, Columbia University. I worked on a farm in central France, and spent several months traveling and working throughout the country.

Reading

I have tutored elementary schoolers from all backgrounds in reading skills and comprehension. I have experience working with students who read far behind their grade level, and kids who would rather play video games. It is always a joy to help them realize how fun reading can be!
