"I'm an experienced tutor and—as of July 2020—a certified teacher! As a private tutor, I've helped hundreds of students master a wide range of subjects, from first-grade arithmetic, to algebra, to college-level writing. I challenge my students to define their goals, and I teach them the skills and strategies they'll need to reach them. Along the way, I help students develop the habits that make learning intrinsically rewarding—taking ownership of their work, developing patience with themselves and the process, tapping into their creativity, and moving beyond formulas to a deeper understanding.

MY BACKGROUND: I received a BA in Liberal Arts from St. John's College ("The Great Books School") where I studied literature, philosophy, and the history of math and science and was awarded the prize for the best senior essay. After graduating, I spent five years at the Harlem Children's Zone in New York City, tutoring students in math and English and teaching art classes. In 2017, I transitioned to full-time private tutoring, before moving to Ann Arbor and earning my Master's in Educational Studies and Secondary Certification from the University of Michigan.

THE LESSONS: I meet students in their homes or at coffee shops, libraries, or other public place. (During COVID-19, I have transitioned to 100% online lessons.) During our first meeting, we'll discuss your academic goals and create a plan for our future work together. The lessons themselves vary, from demanding study sessions to creative activities and games.

Please message me if you'd like to book a lesson or discuss the tutoring process in more detail!" less...
