Helping Students Become Better Thinkers

I'm a Princeton graduate and former English and Social Studies teacher passionate about helping students succeed in school, in a way that is both meaningful and exciting for them.

I am a teacher at heart, having mentored and tutored students of all ages, from kindergarten to high school, PhD candidates to senior citizens. I have tutored literature workshops, trained backpacking trip leaders, led Jewish education initiatives in Berlin, and taught video game design, scriptwriting and medical ethics in public school.

A Princeton graduate in Comparative Literature, with a certificate in German Language and Culture, I took high-level coursework ranging from math-major track classes and advanced physics, to literature, philosophy, sociology, anthropology and language, and I can't wait to learn with your student.
