EducationBA from Yale University (2011, 3.8 GPA) - majored in Literature and History, graduated with honors. For high school, I attended the Trinity School here in NY, where I was active in student life and graduated with highest honors. Before that I went to the Lycee
Francais de New York.
Teaching and mentoring have been great passions of mine since I can remember.
In addition to my tutoring, I currently work as a writer/filmmaker and as an educator at a homeless youth shelter (where I help students prepare for the GED and Nurses' Aide Certification exam, as well as with job readiness).
I've been tutoring high school and junior high students for almost two years.
I can help you prepare for the SAT or any number of SAT subject tests; outline and go through the process of writing an essay or term paper for a history, English, religion, or social studies class; prepare for a French test or provide help with a particularly difficult assignment.
Having spent so many years of my life intently focused on standardized tests myself (having attended one of the most demanding prep schools in NY), I know how daunting it can be to juggle the competing demands of an extensive school workload AND intense preparation for standardized tests.
I know how stressful these tests can be and love helping my students understand that they are mind-games more than real tests of content. I enjoy finding fun and creative ways of helping my students approach questions on these tests, and new ways ways to make difficult subject matter more compelling and accessible.
I test very well (2310 on the SAT, 99th percentile on the GRE, 97th percentile on the LSAT) and love helping my students beat the test-makers. I get so much satisfaction seeing my students' numbers improve as they come to better understand the test.
In addition to test prep, I can help with general subject support, essays, homework, and long term assignments.
I love teaching real academic subjects (pretty much any subject or skill, although languages, history/humanities, writing, and algebra/geometry are my core strengths).
HobbiesI love teaching in any setting, whether it's English to Iraqi refugees, SAT prep to a private school student, French to a 7th grader, or essay-writing to a college student.
I love reading, running, movies, and flying machines.
