Hobart College (Classics)
University of South Florida (Master's)
I graduated Hobart College in 2000 with a BA cum laude in Greek, Religious Studies and a minor in African American Studies. I graduated Harvard University in 2004 with an M. Div. I am currently attending University of South Florida for an expected MA: Religion with a focus on Hinduism. I begin a PhD program this fall in the religions of Asia. My teaching experience is through my work as a graduate teaching assistant for the past two years at USF.
I am a graduate student who loves teaching students to deepen their knowledge of the material as well as develop skills to feel comfortable learning on their own. While good grades are important, I believe learning is for life. I enjoy working closely with students guiding them through question and conversation to understand the material. I also enjoy working with students to produce clear, concise writing. As a graduate teaching assistant, I see many students who are underprepared for college level writing--and the ability to write papers in college is important to all majors. I scored a near perfect verbal score on my SAT years ago, and can help the student who is anxious about college prep tests to become a confident test taker who can excel.
Contact me if you have any questions. I can tutor a wide variety of subjects and am happy to learn new material in order to be up to date with whatever curriculum is being used with the student. I'm a learning coach and can help students with everything from how to listen and take notes in class to how to develop a love of learning for its own sake.

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.
My undergraduate degree is in Classics. I continued to do work with Greek and Latin during my first Master's degree. I have since added Sanskrit (the classical language of South Asia) by taking the summer intensive in Sanskrit at Harvard followed by two semesters with a professor at University of South Florida.
I have an undergraduate major in Religious Studies, a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard, and am now finishing an MA in religion at the University of South Florida. I begin a PhD program this fall in the Religions of Asia.
