About me

I currently reside in New York City, where I work as an academic subject and test prep tutor. I work with students on a wide variety of subjects, including math, biology, literature, essay writing, and general study support or homework help. My guidance has helped students gain admission to competitive American colleges such as Columbia University and the University of Chicago. Over the past four years, I have loved working with students to achieve their goals–it is thrilling to be present when a student makes a significant breakthrough in content comprehension. I aim to listen to my students and make sure that I adapt my teaching style to their needs.

 

I graduated from Harvard College, cum laude, with a degree in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and a language citation in German.

 

About my sessions

My lessons will be structured by allowing lots of time for the student to ask questions to help the learning process. I will also end every lesson with a useful task/question for the student to answer to help consolidate their understanding prior to the next lesson. I hope progress will become apparent, but I think regular mini tests are also important to ensure understanding and help show areas that can be improved upon. Allowing the student to go over material in their own time after the lesson I believe is key for them to develop a solid understanding of the subject.
