I was a teaching assistant in college, where I worked with students at all stages in their academic careers. I also volunteered as a tutor for students grades 6 - 12, focusing on English, History, Reading and Writing.

I have a Masters from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a degree in Anthropology from Wesleyan University. I was a teaching assistant in college, where I worked with students at all stages in their academic careers. I also volunteered as a tutor for students grades 6 - 12, focusing on English, History, Reading and Writing.

When I learned to write and read critically, I felt empowered. Suddenly every major challenge ahead of me as a young adult - the SAT, my college and post graduate applications, my undergraduate and Master's thesis, even job applications and interviews - seemed less daunting, like I had a trick up my sleeve. I became a tutor because empowering others in the same way is incredibly rewarding and, I think, my responsibility as someone who received tutoring myself.

My goal as a tutor is to help my students improve their critical writing, no matter what their current level of training, by focusing on both technique (classic and complex essay structures, citation, paraphrase, building arguments, proofreading etc.) and style (grammar, vocabulary, and tone). Taking time to study and practice the these important elements of writing will not only help my students produce more eloquent and strong written work, but will also help refine invaluable skills such as critical thinking and planning, which they can apply to any academic work.

Reading, of course, is equally as important as writing. In fact, reading inspires us to be better writers ourselves. But reading calls for another set of skills and techniques, which are different from, though complimentary to, those we use in writing. I tutor through a holistic approach that I learned as a teaching assistant in college: learning how to read a text as though you had to write about it.

If you struggle with critical writing and reading, constructing essays, analyzing literature or just need someone to help you proofread or workshop your written work please reach out to me.

If you are currently studying a particular genre, text, or author in a literature course, I can also provide classic English tutoring. We will read together, discuss together and think critically together about your assigned reading.
