I have now successfully taught and tutored for 15 years, from kindergartners to graduate students, from domestic students to those from overseas. For standardized test preparation
, I employ myriad strategies tailored to the individual learning styles of the particular student, in addition to those honed for the particular test. In regards to schoolwork, I endeavor to provide a confidence-building yet challenging environment whereby each student enjoyably learns to the best of her or his abilities.
I hold a BA in English
, cum laude, from Colgate University and an MEd in teaching from Lesley University.
English is my specialty, though I have found that my skills and background have helped pupils in all content areas, including Science
, through at least middle school.
I teach and tutor because I enjoy working with children. There is nothing more rewarding than having a former student, a Yale graduate who now reports for the Huffington Post, contact me to thank him for being the teacher who truly taught him how to write back in middle school; or another, now an Army Ranger, track me down just to thank me for helping him in general.
Through those efforts, I have been fortunate to receive accolades from administrators, colleagues, parents, students, and Fulbright-Hays and National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships during two recent summers, to Morocco and South Africa, respectively.

I look forward to working with you,
