Private tutor in Island Park, NY


New York University - Bachelors, English , The New School - Masters, Creative Writing


Everything I do is driven by the desire to have a positive effect on society and young people. I accomplish this through my writing and my tutoring. I make sure the my students understand that they can achieve success if they put in the effort and learn from their experiences. It takes determination and a positive mindset, but all students can increase their grades and test scores. I also want my students to increase their proficiency as writers and readers. A lot of my perspective in life was shaped by great books, and I believe that people who don't embrace reading just haven't found the right books yet. With writing, I believe research is the key to helping students put together solid arguments, so I focus on helping students master the research process. I have published three different books about the American Revolution, so I'm also happy to help students with US history and related subjects. In addition, I can help students prepare for the ACT and SAT with effective test taking strategies. In my free time, I enjoy studying American history, animals, traveling, exploring, reading, and writing.
