Bio

I am a MA-licensed English and ESL teacher with a Masters of Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have ten years experience working with students of all ages, from preschoolers to college students as a tutor, writing instructor, TA, and classroom teacher. My greatest strength as an educator is meeting my students where they are are, building strong relationships, and using that foundation to support my students in reaching their goals.

I am a MA-licensed English and ESL teacher with a Masters of Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have ten years experience working with students of all ages, from preschoolers to college students as a tutor, writing instructor, TA, and classroom teacher. My greatest strength as an educator is meeting my students where they are are, building strong relationships, and using that foundation to support my students in reaching their goals. I have worked with a wide range of students and have experience working with students with autism, ADHD, and other learning disorders, as well as with English Language Learners. I have also successfully worked with students who have the mechanics of writing down in helping them develop and define their own unique voice--essential for those college essays!

I scored above the 98th percentile in all sections on both the SAT and the GRE and am practiced at tutoring in both reading and math. Standardized tests can be intimidating--it's important to go in with a few key strategies and confidence in your abilities; I can help you develop both!

I work with students to determine their strengths and weaknesses and determine what changes or techniques will yield the most dramatic growth. I have a range of tools at my disposal, for both teaching and practice, so I can easily customize a lesson to meet a student's needs, style, and interests. I help students recognize patterns in their own writing, so they can become more self-sufficient, independent writers and editors.

I have a genuine love for teaching and care for my students--I have seen this pay off both in my students' enjoyment of the lessons and in the academic and organizational gains they make. I am excited to meet new students and work with them as they grow toward their goals.
