I have a Ph.D. in Classics from Brown, and over the past seven years, I have taught a broad range of courses in literature, language, and history. I have developed a strong student-focused approach that aims at understanding students' needs and differences in the learning process. Many of my courses have a solid writing and research component, and I love working with students to help them write convincingly and effectively.
In addition, I have designed and taught courses on English vocabulary and grammar (gerunds, anyone?), and I have worked for one of the leading test-prep companies to prepare students for the GRE, including verbal reasoning and analytical writing sections.
As a tutor, I am like a personal trainer--depending on your goals, I can help you design and execute a study plan that works for you. This may involve regular academic "work-outs" with me, or a periodic check-in to set up a new exercise schedule, or intensive training before a big game.
I look forward to speaking with you about your interests and needs in Latin, writing, English grammar, vocabulary, and GRE prep.
I have worked as a college-level instructor for 7 years, where I have worked extensively with freshmen. I have a strong sense of what makes students more prepared for college. Also, I have helped many students write successful scholarship applications, and I have coordinated the admissions process for Stanford's Summer College program.
