Hi Everyone! I have four years of experience tutoring German, Latin, and writing skills. I currently go to Brandeis University where I tutor ESL students in writing and close reading. I have a strong background in literature and history, as well as Latin, German, Hieroglyphics (Middle and Late Egyptian), and Ancient (Attic) Greek. I have worked closely with students to develop critical thinking skills and close reading skills, both in classical literature and in their specific fields.

My philosophy in tutoring is to help students develop the skills necessary to learn, and not necessarily just memorizing material for assignments and exams. I focus on helping students to develop a strategy for learning languages, both with vocabulary and grammar rules. With writing, I believe that it's important to gauge the level of understanding of the student first, then working to hone their skill with argumentation.
