EducationBard College - Bachelors, Literature
ExperienceI am a voracious learner and I love to share my passion for education with my students. I received my undergraduate degree from Bard College in literature and written arts. As part of my thesis I had the opportunity to write a novel which finely honed my writing skills. I have been tutoring elementary, middle, and high school students for four years in a wide variety of subject areas. I have also worked with an agency to help students prepare for exams and I spent several years counseling and mentoring teens through difficult periods at a teen help center.
I currently tutor many different subjects, including reading, vocabulary, writing, essay editing, high school and college English, phonics, comparative literature, critical reading, Spanish 1 & 2, languages, English grammar and syntax, introduction to fiction, introduction to poetry, and literature. I also work with students who are preparing for a standardized exam such as the ISEE, SSAT, SAT, ACT, and PSAT. I truly want to make a difference in the lives of my students so I take the time to get to know them and discover their individual learning style. Then I develop lessons and independent study materials that help to break down the concepts into more accessible pieces until they are able to gain mastery of the whole.
