I am a Freelance Writer and Private Tutor with experience in college admissions counseling, as well as resume building and essay workshops.
I provide stellar customer service to all clients by offering comprehensive and individualized tutoring programs, tailored to the needs of each student.
My passion for teaching stems from a desire to help students excel in the classroom and overcome personal difficulties with their coursework. As a recent Yale graduate with a Bachelor's of Art in English Literature, I've learned that hard work and diligence can be the key to success in one's academics. Over the past few years of working as a private tutor, I have realized just how rewarding it can be to work with students, helping them grow and foster personal achievement by honing test-taking techniques and skills in problem areas.
I specialize in tutoring high school Mathematics and English as well as preparing students for standardized testing, Regents, SAT and ACT examinations. My goal for each session is to keep the student engaged and to improve their attitude (and, consequently, their confidence) toward their material. My empowering and patient teaching style keeps students motivated without feeling overwhelmed. I assign weekly homework assignments to reinforce their studies, build their confidence, and provide regular assessments to monitor students' performance and to quantitatively ensure improvement over time.
