I'm a junior at Columbia University studying Economics and Art History. I love to connect with students to help them achieve their educational goals. Learning and truly understanding a subject can be difficult; I'm here to help students feel empowered in their learning and make them feel confident in their abilities to achieve academic success. I'm a huge proponent of using methodologies, skills and routines that a student can utilize to help them truly understand course material. With my students, I always strive to create a safe learning environment where students feel compelled and comfortable to ask important questions. My students achieving academic success is fulfilling to myself and to the people who get to learn with me.

I have a proven track record of my own academic achievements, as well as prior students who have learned from me.

My scores:
ACT Composite - 35
ACT Writing - 36
ACT Reading - 36
ACT Essay - 12
AP English Language - 5
AP English Literature - 5

I have tutored students in high school in ACT English sections. 7 of my students have been scoring between 26-30 on ACT reading and writing sections. After tutoring them for 10 weeks, all 7 have continuously achieved 34-36 on ACT reading and writing practice exams, and on the real exam.

I have strong essay writing skills and also proofread and edit college essays. I believe that college essays need to flesh out and tell a compelling story about a student. I love to talk to students about what matters most to them and how they can write a college essay that leaves an impact on admissions officers.

I have worked with 3 students on their college essays. Two of them gained admissions to a top 20 private university. One was previously waitlisted at an Ivy League and after helping them tailor and polish a letter of continued interest, they eventually received admission.

Please feel free to reach out and contact me if my profile seems like a right fit for you! I'm flexible with dates and times and am open to further discussion t
