I am a NY-based tutoring pro, writing professional, and teacher. I teach all ages at the Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side, and have tutored for the SAT as well as general Writing and English skills here in New York City. I have had copywriting jobs for various companies, including Perfectly Frank Inc., LOT 379, and Spreemo. I graduated from Brown University in May 2012 with an English degree. While at Brown, I studied a wide variety of subjects, from history to writing to semiotics, with a central focus on literature and writing. I was awarded a named scholarship and arts award and was active in extracurriculars as a musician, a producer of new work, and an actor. I take tremendous pride in my experiences teaching and tutoring since graduation, and especially enjoy helping pupils reach an understanding and appreciation for new material and transforming their attitude about academics and their own ambitions. I want to help my students figure out what it is about each subject that they love. My education at a competitive private high school and my studies at Brown have encouraged a rigorous approach, an attention to detail, and a strong work ethic. I'm a creative, broad thinker who approaches learning with the right balance of challenge and enjoyment. I think curiosity is contagious. Helping pupils identify their truest, most integrated interest in any given subject is the best way to keep them engaged. I look forward to helping you reach your highest potential.
