ExperienceI am lucky enough to have experienced over twenty years of teaching, and it has been helped me grow not only as a teacher, but also as a person. The greatest feeling for me is witnessing a student gain self-confidence after establishing a solid grasp on a subject they had previously found difficult. I hold a Ph.D. in English from Binghamton University, an achievement that enables me to confidently tutor my students in areas such as advanced essay writing, creative writing, and strong reading comprehension skills. I earned my M.A. and D.E.A. through study at the University of Chicago and the University of Paris VII. I also hold a B.A. in English and Art History from Rutgers College. I have worked with students of many grades and levels, although I have spent my years primarily tutoring high school and undergraduate students. In addition to English, I have also had great success in helping students prepare for the SAT and AP English. I am also extremely confident with the French language, and studied comparative literature for some time. I tend to adapt my teaching style to fit with the personality of my students, as I believe that everyone learns in their own unique way.
HobbiesWhen I am not teaching or tutoring I, in no particular order, write, read, take photographs, travel, walk, play and listen to music, appreciate good food, try to stay current with events in the world, learn about new ideas and approaches, and fix things.
