History

Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

I have a degree in environmental policy, earned from excelling in courses such as Comparative Government, Modern Political Theory, American Politics, U.S. Environmental Law, and Toxic Substances/Hazardous Waste Policy. I spent months as a research assistant for a Politics professor. My research focused on water laws, environmental justice policy, and regulation of the logistics industry. I also have experience researching state energy legislation at a clean technology incubator. My senior thesis explores a critical issue with renewable energy policy/federalism in the United States.

Music

Oboe

Oboe

I offer oboe lessons at the beginner and intermediate levels. Lessons include technique & control as well as an introduction to reed making. I've been playing oboe since the fourth grade and have played in multiple orchestras, often as first chair. I currently play for pleasure; the oboe is truly a beautiful instrument and I love sharing the joy of music with my students.

Test Preparation

SSAT,

SSAT

I scored a 2250 on the SSAT and was accepted to several prestigious East Coast boarding schools. Test preparation is tailored to the student's individual needs. It includes not only test content and skill review but also developing strategies for testing anxiety and time management. For a 5th grader, we'll work on expanding beyond the basic 5-paragraph essay structure as well as more complex text analysis, vocabulary, and grammar lessons. For my high schoolers, I usually pair close reading (annotations, transition phrases author's attitudes, when to skim vs. when to read) with work on expository/argumentative essay writing. This will help with speed reading, school readings, and (eventually) college admission test prep.
