Hello! I have been a professional tutor for eight years, and I love helping learners increase their confidence and master content. I recently received a master's degree in human development and psychology from Harvard, during which time I learned a great deal about the psychology of learning. Prior to graduate school, I accrued over 10,000 hours of tutoring experience and helped students (middle school–PhD) reach academic and professional goals spanning a broad spectrum of disciplines and industries.

I'm particularly skilled and interested in speaking, writing, reading, and comprehension improvement in the academic contexts of literature, psychology, philosophy, sociology, history, political science, anthropology, and religious studies. I also have considerable experience tutoring for admissions essays and general admissions coaching, test prep, interview prep, and powerpoint presentations.

In the realm of business, I am adept and accomplished at ideating, organizing, writing, editing, and strategizing within the following areas: job interview prep, career development, entrepreneurship, project management, and public speaking. Please let me know if you have any other questions about my skills or background. I look forward to incorporating my unique teaching technique, knowledge, and experience into an impactful tutoring experience for you!

Career Development

I built a successful English tutoring business from scratch. This involved honing expertise in an array of business practices: sales, marketing, public speaking, quality assurance, project management, and human resource management. I've also worked as a project manager at a large U.S. based telecom corporation and a consultant/live-broadcast educator at a Chinese-based edtech company. These experiences add up to a decade's worth of skill and knowledge acquisition that I would like to share with you to help you find an ideal job or thrive within your current organization.
Project Management

Project Management

I worked for one year as a project manager at a Boston-based telecommunications corporation. In that role, I was responsible for monitoring and regulating internal legal, financial, and administrative processes, including contracts, project baselines, report distribution, and resource allocation. During that time, I served on a select troubleshooting team for a six-week assignment abroad at Telstra, an Australia-based client, to resolve an order entry backlog issue. Additionally, over the course of eight years, I built and grew a successful English tutoring business from scratch, which involved honing expertise in an array of business practices adjacent to or in collaboration with project management: sales, marketing, public speaking, quality assurance, bookkeeping, and human resource management.

Macintosh

Macintosh

I've run a business, written blogs, and recorded music and podcasts all using a Macintosh computer. Before using a Mac, I had used Windows as my OS, so I'm particularly skilled at helping individuals transition from working on the latter to the former. I can teach all basic navigation, saving, locating, and downloading functions, as well as more advanced topics like using GarageBand software.
