Experience

I am a tutor from Cambridge, MA. I approach learning and life with the same mindset. I believe each student learns differently, and tutoring should not only cater to the individual learning style of each student, but also help them strive for excellence in all areas of their life. I help students understand concepts, while building a relationship similar to that of a coach or mentor. I use emotional intelligence to gauge the student's level of understanding, and I adjust my teaching style and pace to best match their needs. I have a bachelor's degree in Social Studies and a secondary field in English from Harvard. Currently, I work as a Research Assistant at the Harvard Kennedy School. I excel at tutoring a variety of subjects, but I really enjoy working with students in Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Reading, Writing, History, Economics, and Psychology. I also enjoy helping students build solid study habits, and prepare for exams like the ACT and SAT. When a student struggles to master a subject, it can negatively impact their confidence and self esteem. I use my positive attitude towards learning to foster a guiding relationship with the student that makes learning relatable and fun. In my free time I enjoy going to the movies, traveling, dining out, and exploring Boston.
