Bio

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Linguistics with a Creative Writing minor. I have been tutoring since September 2017 both online and in person. One thing I learned from Philosophy is the importance of clarity and presenting complex ideas in an easy to follow and simple manner. It brings me joy to help students succeed and prosper.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Linguistics with a Creative Writing minor. I have been tutoring since September 2017 both online and in person. One thing I learned from Philosophy is the importance of clarity and presenting complex ideas in an easy to follow and simple manner. It brings me joy to help students succeed and prosper. Often times I think difficult concepts are difficult simply because they are explained so poorly. I enjoy unpacking them and organizing them into an approachable manner, as I have learned to do in Philosophy.

Since September 2017 I have worked at the Huntington Learning Center, where we are trained in standarized test prep for ACT, SAT, SSAT, GRE, and more. The experiences I had there have made me quite familiar with the tests. Further, my experiences in writing papers in Philosophy have given me a great understanding of how to make a good argumentive essay as seen on the ACT and GRE.

For Linguistics, I have of course majored in it, and I am currently enrolled in the University of Buffalo for their graduate program of Speech Language Pathology, which essentially applies Linguistics to the clinical setting, and thus I am still quite familiar with the material. I am able to read and write with the English symbols in the IPA with no issues.

As for Bible Studies, I have read through the entire Protestant canon and have done extensive independent study of Theology and the scriptures. I am also an ordained reader in the Orthodox Church, and thus I continue to read the scriptures daily.

If any of my areas of expertise are relevant to what you need, I look forward to hearing from you!

I have taken the GRE myself and placed in the 94th percentile (164) for the Verbal Reasoning section. I am currently enrolled in a graduate program that I submitted my GRE scores to, and was accepted to another. I have also tutored the GRE before, and one of my students told me he got into his top choice with his GRE scores.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, double majoring in Linguistics and Philosophy at New York University.

In Morphology and Field Methods I studied and analyzed the Acholi Luo language (spoken in parts of Uganda) and the Shugni language (relative of Persian) respectively, collecting sentence and word examples from native speakers and analyzing them morphologically, phonetically, and syntacticly. I recieved a 3.67 GPA for all my Linguistics classes taken.

Bible Studies

I have read the entirety of the Protestant canon and continue to read the daily scripture readings as prescribed in the Orthodox calendar. For over 8 years I have independently read and studied many facets of Theology and how they are related to the scriptures. I have been a part of various Bible studies since High School or earlier and have consequently become quite familiar with the scriptures and their interpretations.

knowledgeable tutor

Great test taking strategies. Used him for my son's SATS, he was extremely detailed in questions on the SAT exam and how to study for the different types of questions. Certain key parts of the text to look at for answering specific questions. Gave suggestions on books and explained why they would be better options.
