Hello, I’m Erin. I recently graduated Cum Laude from Wellesley College, with a degree in English Literature. In addition to my coursework at Wellesley, I completed sociology, and playwriting courses at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through its cross-registration program. I also spent the summer of 2018 studying film and television writing at the University of Southern California. I am currently taking a gap year, and will be attending law school next fall. I have already been accepted to Duke Law School, and am incredibly excited to continue my educational journey.

Admittedly, I was a late bloomer when it came to academics. In elementary school, my attention deficit disorder made focusing in class and completing assignments on time difficult. Fortunately, I had teachers and tutors who made school more manageable, and even taught me that education could be enjoyable. I believe I am more appreciative of my education because things did not always come naturally to me, and I can relate to students who need some extra support. I know the global pandemic, from the Zoom classes to the loss of regular social interaction, has made education challenging for several students. I decided to pursue tutoring because I want to help students reach their goals in the face of uncertainty, and show them that learning can be fun and fulfilling in the process.

I believe my strongest assets as a tutor are my writing and editing skills. In addition to majoring in English Literature, I served as Editor-in-Chief of my college newspaper. During the four years I spent with The Wellesley News, I wrote over one-hundred articles and worked directly with students to edit and fine-tune their pieces. I also interned at CBS News in Washington D.C., where I wrote digital articles, fact-checked stories, and edited scripts. I am available to help students with essays and writing assignments, whether they need assistance brainstorming ideas or proofreading in the later stages. I also went through the college and law sch

I also completed acting and directing courses at Wellesley College, which reinforced the importance of proper breathing, projection, and eye-contact.

Logical reasoning is my strongest section, but I also feel confident in my ability to teach the reading comprehension and analytical reasoning (games) sections.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Erica was a tremendous support for me during my grad school application. She was patient, and took the time to learn about my accomplishments in order to help me write an impactful personal statement.

Jordyn, 3 lessons with Erin

Very professional

She helped me with my essay and reviewed it. She is very good at writing, she is very nice and polite, and very skilled. I would struggle on writing commentaries on my annotations and she truly helped me with this. She gave me new thought and great suggestions.

Hailey, 41 lessons with Erin

Always prepared and has really great explanations

Stop looking for another LSAT tutor. Erin is the best. I say this after working with three other tutors before her. She has a lot of energy and is really friendly so her explanations feel super helpful. She is really intelligent and you can see how she has a very clear image of the test and can pick up really fast on what you need to work on. She is really open to whatever you want to work on, but she will assign work if you ask for it. She is really active in the session and engaging and I love working with her. She has a lot of availability and is really flexible about times to meet. My score has already gone up 10 points since I first met with her. Working with her makes the test seem more fun and less work.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

LSAT review. I am very impressed with Erin and her willingness to tailor the sessions to the things I am struggling with the most. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Today was our first session Erin K was detailed and going through everything with me I’m a beginner with the LSAT she really broke things down for and I really feel confident on the first session. Excited for our next session.

LRecole, 3 lessons with Erin

Very helpful and kind.

We feel very fortunate to have found Erin during her off year. She is very, kind, patient, and skilled at teaching and writing. She’s a great communicator and empowers my son who is more STEM oriented to tap into his inner writer and reader. :) She gently directs him to think deeper and more analytically while instilling in him confidence in his ability to grow as a writer. My son is very quiet, somewhat inhibited and very efficient when speaking and she is very patient with him and doesn’t put any pressure for him to be anyone he’s not. She allows my son to be himself and adapts to and respects his style of learning which I believe is key as an educator. It provides the ideal environment for a student to thrive and I witness this interaction between Erin and my son. You know you’ve got a good tutor when the tutor respects, listens, and affirms her students and at the same directs them on the right path.🙏 Erin is that tutor!

A tutor that goes above and beyond!

I've had my fair share of tutors, and Erin outperforms them all! She has done an exceptional job at tutoring me in AP Government and English Writing. What sets Erin apart from many tutors is her style of teaching. She is flexible, and manages to find many ways of interpreting difficult concepts/topics for the student to understand, notably in an impressively short period of time. I've never seen my test and essay scores improve so drastically in as little as a week, and I owe it all to Erin. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and I can say with certainty that I will continue to choose her as my tutor!
