Overview

I am a world traveler with over nine years of tutoring experience. Having recently received my MA from NYU with a background in Sociolinguistics and related research, I can help you with many different areas. My experience as an editor for a publishing company, combined with other professional experience in a variety of positions, allow me to offer students a unique perspective on diverse subjects.

Let's learn and grow together!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are structured, yet flexible, centering around your strengths and weaknesses. Since everything is catered around your individual needs, no two students share the same exact experience. I learn what works best for you based on your study habits, interests and personality and implement any necessary assignments to help you achieve the best possible results. I adopt a very hands-on approach and provide you with additional information and avenues (both creative and technological) to continue learning beyond our sessions in a fun way.
