"Looking for a patient and creative Ivy League grad with experience? I've tutored test-prep, writing, study skills, and the humanities since 2001. As a head Writing Fellow at Brown, I helped hundreds of students across a range of disciplines improve their grasp of grammar, argument, and overall essay coherence. As literature and writing instructor at Syracuse University, I worked with sixty students each semester--helping them learn how to plan, write, and edit papers at the college level. I was also something of a standardized test whiz in high school, and have experience working with the most popular test formats (particularly the SAT and ACT). Most importantly, I have a compassionate and sensitive teaching style, and am enthusiastic about helping people realize their potential. I've been told I'm a natural teacher. I'm patient, funny, and I have an aptitude for framing questions that draw students to their own insights. I've worked extensively with high school seniors and college freshmen, so I'm acutely sensitive to the needs of students (and anxious parents) getting ready to transition from high school to university. My own writing has appeared in national magazines since 2005. I've been published by CNN, Popular Science, GOOD Magazine, and more. In 2009, my writing was recognized with a Pushcart Prize. Have questions? Drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you." less...
