I am a Ph.D. student at Columbia, and I just moved to New York City this fall! I love tutoring and teaching students, and I have worked with a number of educational programs, from boarding schools to Americorps. I specialize in languages (English, French, German, Latin, and Ancient Greek) and test prep. I seek to help my students make connections between new material and things that are familiar to them, breaking down higher concepts with accessible examples that can help foster creativity. I care deeply about my students and their success, and I look forward to working with you!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that every subject we learn has relevance and connections to the world around us. I work to achieve "aha!" moments with students by tackling complex topics through the lens of what is already familiar, so that my students can see the importance of what they learn and remember the connections they made.
