Academics & College

Academic / Executive Functioning / Homework Skills

I work to help students to not only get through their classes, but also find the insights and confidence that can make learning enjoyable. I offer academic tutoring in subjects including:

  • Essay coaching

  • Executive Functioning / Homework skills

  • Math through Pre-calculus

Academic coaching can be on a regular basis or for a tune up before tests or upcoming essays and projects. All Executive Functioning and homework skills building teaches students how to stay organized, focused and successful while keeping stress levels lower.

With Executive Functioning and Academic tutoring, I build from the foundation of classroom materials and learning. When possible, coordinating academic tutoring with classroom teachers can strengthen a student’s engagement with their subjects and provides a more comprehensive support network for success. I am also available to step into a more primary teaching role, shoring up subject fundamentals and supplement classroom assignments.

College Admissions Advising & Essays

Grounded in my experience working for Bowdoin College Admissions, I guide students through the process of applying to college. This can include comprehensive admissions advising or support with specific aspects of the application process, which include:
 

  • College lists, researching schools across the country and internationally 
     

  • Essays and writing samples, from pre-writing and brainstorming to highly effective drafting and editing tools. Students working with me write personal, thoughtful and original submissions. Please note all essays will be written directly by the student.
     

  • Application management, highly detail-oriented work across the Common App, UC application and more, maintaining deadlines to ensure applications are submitted on time. 

    Contact me for more information on college admissions advising.
