As a private tutor, I have supported students through IB high school programs and all Middle School subjects.

I have been teaching literature and philosophy at the university level for 15+ years, and excel in building critical reading and writing skills for students at all levels. As a private tutor, I have supported students through IB high school programs and all Middle School subjects. I also help high school seniors craft and shape their college application essays, working both independently and with private educational consultants.

I am passionate about what I teach, non-judgmental and have an excellent sense of humor. My concern is not only to hone my students' skills in specific subjects, but to help them learn how to be students. Studying, test taking,time management, communicating with teachers -- these are not genetic inheritances, they are skills that can be learned. I have been teaching them with great success for more than two decades.
