EducationI have a B.A. in Philosophy and Dance and Movement Studies from Emory University and an M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition (English) from Georgia State University. I also completed the post-baccalaureate pre-medical program at Agnes Scott College.
ExperienceI have been tutoring/teaching SAT test prep since 2008. After taking the GRE and MCAT, I have tutored classmates for both exams, although for the MCAT my specialization lies with Verbal Reasoning and overall test-taking strategies. I am a trained composition instructor for college-level classes, therefore I am qualified to help students with essays, term papers, and theses.
I enjoy tutoring for many reasons, not least of which is my desire to have a job that lets me help people using the skills I have. Many people have helped me achieve my academic goals over the years, so I see tutoring as a way for me to thank them and pass the help along. There are so many ways to learn something, just as there are an infinite number of ways to get stuck, to hit that intellectual wall. As a tutor, it is my job to help you find the door to get through that wall.
I have extensive experience as a student and an inability to stop learning. I've mastered the humanities and look forward to mastering science in the next few years. (Assuming mastery is ever an option...)I believe I'm in a unique place to help students who feel that they just can't do it. That they are "bad" at something. Trust me. I've been there. You're not. You just haven't found a way to be good at that subject yet! That's my goal for our sessions together.
My rate us $40/hr for test prep sessions and English or writing-focused sessions. If you are interested in purchasing several sessions in advance, discounted packages are available.
HobbiesMy free time is usually filled with the following activities: reading, working out, doing yoga and pilates, hanging out with Abby (a.k.a. best dog ever), and the occasional netflix marathon.
