During my college years at Boston College, I enjoyed a diverse curriculum built upon a love for both the classics
of English literature
. I graduated magna cum laude in 2011 having completed an honors thesis on the poetry of Wallace Stevens, and I will attend the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University in the fall of 2014.
My love for teaching began during my junior year at Boston College, when I began working as a teaching assistant for Anatomy
and Introductory Biology
courses. During my senior year, I worked as an English writing
tutor in BC’s Connors Family Learning Center, helping hundreds of science
students writing technical papers, liberal arts students completing theses in their respective majors, and ESL
students practicing English grammar
Now, I specialize in tutoring English writing, proofreading
, grammar, and literature. Whether working with college students who struggle with English as a second language
, or high school students preparing college essays, my goal is always to provide a challenging, yet rewarding experience for the student. With students who plan on working with me over multiple sessions, I assign challenging homework after lessons and provide periodic assessments and project reports.
I value my own time as well as yours. I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. And while I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I am happy to offer makeup classes for committed students on a case-by-case basis.
To ensure that students have a quiet, comfortable workspace while with me, I prefer to tutor in my office on Harvard University’s Cambridge campus, where I am employed full-time. I am, however, happy to travel to other locations accessible by the Boston T if it is more convenient for the student. I prefer to work outside of normal work hours (e.g. before 9am or after 5pm) and am available on weekends.
I look forward to hearing from you and providing more information about my services. Contact me to get started on achieving greater success in your studies!
