For the past five years, I have taught writing courses that help students transition from High School-level English to College-level English. I have also been tutoring for eight years. I received a PhD in English Literature in December 2017 from Cornell University. My focus was on Shakespeare's plays, but I have also taught courses on detective fiction, pop culture, and short stories. I am passionate about helping students because really great teaching, teaching that connects and communicates, will stay with a student for life. I love to learn how people think about the tasks they are facing--it is always interesting in its own right and shows me how they can build on their strengths and re-shape what they are doing in order to get good results now and, even more importantly, develop lasting skills. These abilities stick and increase one's long-term capacity to handle information, organize one's thoughts and communicate effectively. Outside of my academic work, I like cooking, book reviewing, and reading science fiction and fantasy.

I love both test prep and academic subjects. I received a perfect score on the verbal portion of the SAT both times I took the test, and I love helping students find ways to get inside the logic of any test--there's always a way. I also love helping students gain a deeper understanding of the skills required to write a superb essay. I can talk about a single word choice for hours, but I also know how to help students push forward and get their work done under time pressure.

Please get in touch, so we can talk about how I could best help you!
