I am an experienced and dynamic teacher offering 1-on-1 guidance across a broad range of subjects in the general humanities for students in grades 4 -12. I have taught courses in writing, art history, philosophy, literature and theology, integrating aspects of anthropology, psychology, transdisciplinary architecture, film theory and gender studies at top colleges. Additionally, I have also designed and guided intensive programs in writing and art for high school students, led workshops in integrative educational strategies, and have tutored in college learning centers where we work with students to develop personal plans for honing study skills. I hold an MFA in Writing and have presented my performance and installation-based art at galleries and museums across the country.

As a tutor, I place a strong emphasis on research methods and critical thinking, helping students develop a battery of tactics for tackling projects of any scope in any subject area. My aim is to stoke the curiosities of students while providing the tools and encouragement to hone their talents. My passion is to embolden all pursuits of creative inquiry. With this in mind, I am also interested in pursuing less conventional tutoring, such as building and diagramming idea models, inventing games, collecting and sorting research materials using poetry and collage, going for walks to explore a topic through discussion, making videos, etc.

I have taught Composition & Rhetoric classes for more than 8 years. I am accustomed to guiding students through the steps it takes to generate and organize one's thoughts for efficient and maximally satisfying productivity. Additionally, I taught for 2 years in a Masters of Arts in Teaching graduate program where I led a course called Writing & Writing Methods for secondary and high school-level teachers (and soon-to-be-teachers) earning their degrees in educational methods and pedagogical studies. Lastly, I have, for 4 years, taught in Bard College's integrative Language & Thinking program, using a curriculum that draws from across the humanities, preparing recent high school graduates for demanding college-level thinking and writing.
