"A lot of students are experiencing online instruction for the first time. It’s an adjustment—less interaction with teachers and peers, fewer opportunities for hands-on learning, and a degree of self-discipline that might not have been necessary before.

I’ve been utilizing online tutoring tools including Zoom, Google drive, and Skype for years. You may be new to this, but I am not, and I can help you prepare for that college entrance exam (whenever it happens) or keep up with your coursework in history and literature.

If you’re a parent concerned that your child isn’t being challenged enough, I also offer enrichment lessons to keep kids engaged and to strengthen reading and writing skills. Whether we’re exploring the hero’s journey in Harry Potter or discussing how immigration shaped American through the lens of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, I want your student to look forward to reading and discussion so that those becomes lifelong skills.

I'm a graduate of Wellesley College (undergrad) and Harvard University (masters), with an SAT of 780V/750M and a GRE score of 800V/770M (160/153 on the current scale). I have scored a 5 on both AP English tests, as well as the US History, Government, and Calculus exams (and a 4 on Art History). This isn't because I'm a genius--it's because I'm a good test taker, and I can help you become a better one as well. Whether you want to try to make dramatic gains on a test or you just need a bit of tweaking, I can tailor my approach to your needs.

I was a peer tutor in college, I've taught English and political science at the high school and college levels respectively, and I've helped South African university students prepare for the GRE--so no matter where you fall on the spectrum, we can customize an approach to help you make the strides you want to make.

I really love tutoring English, literature, and social studies, among others, so whether you're getting a summer school credit out of the way, struggling to get through a tough course, or shooting for an A and a 5 on the AP test," less...
