More About Me
Outside of reading and writing, my hobbies include making and eating food, spending time with my family and friends, and doing yoga. I hope to one day teach high school English, and in the meantime, I look forward to learning with and about you.
I believe tutoring is a conversation between student and tutor, and I am so excited to share with others a passion for learning. I love to hear about what interests the students I work with, and I strive to cater to those specific interests while tutoring. I am especially skilled at editing writing, and I aim to help students preserve their voices while refining both grammar and argument. I am an avid reader, and spent my undergraduate career searching for meaning in books, essays, and other written documents. I would be delighted to work with you on any of the subjects listed!

Year of Graduation:
I graduated with a 3.99 (summa cum laude), Phi Beta Kappa, from NYU and made the Dean's List all eight semesters. I was a Presidential Honors Scholar from 2017-2020, the George Maker Research Scholar from 2019-2020, and was awarded the Dean Archibald L. Bouton Prize for Research in English for my senior honors thesis. In high school, I was a member of the National Honor Society and I received 4s on the following AP exams: English Literature, Environmental Science, Spanish Language and Culture, US Government, US History.
As an Undergraduate Writing Tutor at NYU, I provided both written and oral feedback on student papers in literature and sociology courses for three years. I also served as a mentor for first-year students and led biweekly cohort meetings covering an array of topics, from navigating the school's academic portal to diversity and inclusion on college campuses, as a College Leader in the College of Arts and Science at NYU. In high school, I was a summer camp counselor at the South East Consortium in Westchester, where I taught music, swimming, and vocational skills to children with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I have participated in a number of New York Cares volunteer programs, especially with elementary-school-aged children and children and young adults with special needs. I also volunteered for South East Consortium for six years throughout middle and high school, and part of college. My role as a College Leader at NYU emphasized the importance of service, and three times a year I led volunteer events for my students, including tending to street trees in East New York and making sandwiches and constructing lunch bags for unhoused people in NYC.
