Harvard College (History and English)
I've been tutoring since I was in high school, and continued to tutor peers (and, eventually, teach entire classrooms of students) through college and after graduation. As a tutor, I like to help students build on where they already have skills and strengths, and also challenge them to tackle skills or concepts that they find most challenging, without letting them become frustrated.
My specialties are in English (including reading and writing, both for test prep and school) and History, which were my majors at Harvard College. I've continued to work in these disciplines since I graduated, and I bring my passion for these subjects into my tutoring work.
I believe becoming a good reader and writer is at the heart of being a good thinker and communicator, and I am particularly passionate about giving people the tools to read and write with clarity and strength. I've helped students of many different ages and ability levels improve these skills. I was selected to be a Writing Tutor at Harvard College and the Harvard Extension School, where I helped students improve the organization, clarity, and elegance of their writing. I've also taught English to classes of 6th and 7th graders, and as a remedial subject for students at a whole range of ages.
In addition to English, I also studied History in college, and worked as a Teaching Assistant for a college-level class on American History. Since graduating, I've worked professionally as a historical researcher and writer. I love this subject, and love helping other people become excited about it, as well.
I'd love to learn more about your own interests and goals (what's a struggle for you right now? What skills are you hoping to develop? What do you want to achieve?), and then talk more about how you can get there. Please feel welcome to be in touch to learn more about me and my experience.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
