"A decorated graduate of top colleges, I have 15 years' experience teaching English language, literature, writing and test prep (including math) at American private schools, serving both high-performing and developing or learning-challenged students. I have also taught across the humanities and arts, including history, as well as music and art history. Throughout my career, I have also tutored privately in the same subjects, working 1-on-1 with students from middle school through college-aged, and from New Orleans to New England. This means I can help a wide variety of students, from those needing work on the fundamentals of grammar and syntax to those applying to competitive universities and needing to hone their college application essays.

I am an expert in standardized test prep, with an unbroken record of improving students' scores, primarily on the SAT but also on the ACT, GRE, and Praxis exams (I tutor Math as well as Reading and Writing).

When I work with students, they have my undivided attention and absolute respect.

I was educated at Amherst College, in MA; the University of Oxford (Lincoln College), in England; and Loyola University-New Orleans, obtaining undergraduate and advanced degrees in English as well as an advanced degree in Education. I graduated from Amherst magna cum laude and a member of Phi Beta Kappa in 2000. I was voted Most Outstanding Graduate Student in the School of Education at Loyola in 2007. Teaching, I was voted Best New Teacher at a school in New Orleans in 2001, where I later became the youngest department chair in school history. Later, I moved to Western Massachusetts, where I also served as department chai" less...
