Graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Philosophy and Yale University with an M.Div. I have extensive experience writing and editing honors-level academic essays, research papers, resumes, cover letters and college admissions essays (both Common App & supplemental essays). I also have experience teaching English literacy, philosophy, and theology and can provide tutoring for the SAT Writing/Essay (scored 790/800). I love working with students across all ages, having taught/tutored middle & high schoolers, college students, and professionals.

Writing/English/Proofreading: I've spent 7 years in the humanities departments of the Ivy League and have mastered the rubric for honors-level academic writing. I won a national award for an essay exploring God and evil, served as the senior editor and president of a faith-based literary arts journal, and have tutored middle and high school students from both the U.S. and Hong Kong in English literacy. Beyond academic writing, I have worked at Brown University's career center, where I assisted students through their resumes and cover letters and led university-wide workshops on these topics.

Bible Studies: I graduated from Yale University with a Master of Divinity degree and am currently leading a self-designed advanced seminar for a local congregation on the intersections between the Christian faith, theology, politics, ethics and culture. I also spent a summer creating a Bible study curriculum for both undergraduate and graduate school students.

SAT Writing: Scored 790/800.

I'd love to begin a conversation about how we can work together to meet your academic goals, needs and preferences in the most efficient and effective way possible! I work to design a personalized learning experience that gives you immediate results and an in-depth understanding of the subject matter based on your individual needs.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

Having graduated from Yale University with a Master of Divinity and Brown University with a degree in Philosophy, I've become well-versed in the academic fields of Christian history, biblical studies (New and Old Testaments), theology, philosophy/ethics and contemporary religious trends. I've spent 2 years leading adult-level courses on the fundamentals of Christian doctrine, designed a bible course for undergraduate and graduate school students and am currently leading an self-designed advanced seminar on topics involving the Bible, theology, church history and ethics. I also operate as a part-time preacher and youth pastor for a local congregation, and so I understand the areas where academic and faith-based biblical studies both overlap and diverge.
