About Maya

Hi, my name is Maya. I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Classics and Philosophy at Yale University. I received my Bachelor's degree summa cum laude in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) and Classical Studies from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008 and then spent a year studying at Oxford University.

Given my background, I can help you study for a huge range of humanities or political science courses, learn Latin or Ancient Greek, or prepare for the SAT and GRE verbal and writing sections (on which I scored 800.) I also took and received a 5 on AP exams in Microeconomics, U.S. History, French Language, French Literature, English Literature, and Latin, so I'd be happy to help you get ready for any of these tests.

My more unusual areas of expertise include archaeology--I spent three summers working as an excavator in Greece--and reading academic German. (My Ph.D. program required me to teach myself, in less than a year, to read dense German journal articles, so if you find yourself in a similar situation, I may be able to help. But if you're looking for someone to teach you to speak German, I'm sure another tutor would be much better!)

As a tutor, I promise to invest 100% in your success. In my previous experience as an SAT tutor, I always tried to tailor my teaching to my student and share the same love of learning that's kept me in school for all these years.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
