I received my BA from Wesleyan University in 2020 with Honors in Philosophy and Phi Beta Kappa. I spent one year abroad studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford University. Having met stages one and two of Wesleyan's general education requirements, I have excelled in humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences so am able to provide assistance in a wide variety of subjects.
Having peer-reviewed many papers in university, I am especially adept at workshopping essays in various departments (including philosophy, literature, psychology, history, and sociology). I also have experience tutoring high school math (geometry, algebra, pre-calculus) and am willing to tutor younger students as well.
I am highly adaptable to the needs of the student and am quite good at adapting my style and vocabulary to who I am interacting with. Ultimately, my goal is to have the student be able to teach the material to me in a cogent manner. I accomplish this in part by asking the right questions rather than simply giving answers. I have experience working with non-native English speakers so have grown accustomed to speaking in ways that others can understand.
Outside of academia I enjoy reading books, watching films, singing, playing the piano and guitar, getting exercise, and going to Maine. My passions are acting and Russian literature.
