I am a 6th-year PhD candidate in history at Columbia University available as a remote tutor for students seeking help in AP Modern European History, AP United States History, or essay writing, reading comprehension, and test prep (verbal/reading sections) more broadly. I bring several years as an educator and a lifelong passion for history and writing to my tutoring. I offer a tutoring service that can be flexibly structured around the student’s schedule and needs, whether it is specific content review, test prep strategies for AP and standardized exams, constructive feedback on a particular writing/research assignment, or help digesting material.

AP and college-level history courses can be particularly challenging since they place many demands on students. Students must be able to absorb and synthesize vast amounts of detail, draw out themes and trends from data, critically evaluate and interpret historical documents, and craft and present coherent arguments in written form. Many of these skills are also essential for strong performances on verbal, reading, and writing exams. Successfully applying these skills may seem intimidating, but anybody can master them with sufficient effort and attention. For me, the greatest rewards of teaching are the moments when students recognize their capacity for critical thinking and interpretation and begin to arm themselves with skills that will serve them throughout the rest of their lives and careers.

My doctoral research focuses on European and US economic and social history in the twentieth century and I have several years of experience as an instructor of record, teaching assistant, recitation leader, and grader for several history courses at Columbia University.

For those interested in tutoring sessions, I would love to hear about your goals, interests, and learning objectives. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me! I am also available to answer any questions you may have about my background and qualifications.
