Hello! I'm an educator/lifelong student with a deep desire to help every student maximize their potential. I have a Master's degree from Princeton, a BA in Psychology and a BA in Philosophy, and stellar high school test scores to match. I am passionate about teaching, learning, and bringing out the highest potential in every student! I believe in tutoring methods that let the student define the process of learning, not the other way around. In every student, I seek to cultivate careful analytical thought, incisive critical thinking, and ownership of one's own learning. My mission as a tutor is to provide an environment of personalized learning which accomplishes those goals, and applies them particularly to standardized tests. The emphasis of my tutoring is always on the particular needs and goals of the student.

In high school I received exemplary standardized testing scores. Continuing my education, I obtained undergraduate degrees in disciplines that solidified my understanding of how to learn and critically think. I acquired skills that are useful in any area of academic inquiry. I went on to gain graduate level training in the humanities from Princeton. Since then, I have been developing my experience working as as a Test Prep Tutor and helping students succeed on the SAT and ACT. Through all my educational and professional pursuits, I have mastered the skills required for effective standardized test performance. In my tutoring process, I aim to create an environment in which every student can understand, practice, and master the strategies and skills these tests require, and I am looking forward to working with you to develop those skills in yourself!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have! I look forward to diving into the Test Prep process together!
