My teaching style is skill-based. In my teaching, I get the most out of students by emphasizing how each subject builds and develops useful skills - skills that will prove valuable to students in both their academic and professional lives.
I am a former teacher with a combined 5 years of teaching/tutoring experience in a range of subjects: English, History, French, Humanities. I have degrees in History from Swarthmore College and Yale University and have also studied literature and foreign languages.
