Hello! I am a graduate of Swarthmore College with a BA in History, Psychology, and Music. I've been a Wyzant tutor since January 2021, and I have six years of cumulative tutoring experience, including two years of teaching ESL virtually to students in China and Taiwan.

I believe that students can conquer any subject with patience and flexibility in teaching style. I am passionate about working with students to find the learning method that suits them best!

I have taken AP and/or college courses in the following: English, History, Music Theory, Psychology, Math, Physics, Biology, and French Language. In addition, I received high scores on the SAT and ACT and am well equipped to prepare students for these exams in terms of content and strategy. I am also happy to help with writing assignments or college admissions essays!

Please feel free to reach out with any specific questions about my qualifications or areas of expertise.

I have been singing formally since 1st grade-for more than 2/3 of my life! I am an experienced vocalist and have trained at Boston University Tanglewood Institute with renowned singers.
