About Daria


Bio

Hi! My name is Daria, and I am currently studying Biology and Creative Writing at Columbia University. I received perfect scores in the English and Reading sections on the ACT, and I've had 4+ years of experience as a peer tutor in high school--and, informally, as a tutor to my younger brothers.

Hi! My name is Daria, and I am currently studying Biology and Creative Writing at Columbia University. I received perfect scores in the English and Reading sections on the ACT, and I've had 4+ years of experience as a peer tutor in high school--and, informally, as a tutor to my younger brothers.

For younger students, I love teaching a combination of Creative Writing and English--reinforcing grammar, vocabulary, and cohesiveness while engaging students in a creative and fun way. As a first-generation student, I'm very familiar with the landscape of college applications and would also love helping students with their essays and test preparation, specifically in regards to the ACT.

I love working with children and teenagers--I spend my free time volunteering at Kravis Children's Hospital and, at Columbia, I'm a Resident Advisor for freshman. I am easy to reach and would be more than willing to work with students/parents in developing a rigorous, personalized curriculum. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!

In high school, I was Editor-in-Chief of my school newspaper. I am studying Creative Writing and Biology at Columbia University, and have received a Gold Key in multiple categories (Journalism, Personal Essay, and Poetry) at the Scholastic Writing Competition. A short story I wrote, "The Chess Piece," received Honorable Mention at the Writers of the Future competition.
