Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am a passionate, patient tutor with a breadth of experience as a writer, editor, educator, and attorney, and I would love to use my skills and expertise to help you achieve your goals!

Test Scores:

While SAT did not include a writing component when I took the exam, I did score a perfect 800 on the SAT Verbal and SAT II Literature exams, and a perfect 5 in AP English Literature and AP English Language. On the LSAT, I scored in the 98th percentile at 170.


For my undergraduate degree, I won an academic scholarship to attend Boston University as an Honors Program student. In 2006, I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, with Distinction in English and the John Findlay Award for Philosophy. I earned my law degree from Columbia Law School, graduating in 2009 as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.

Teaching Experience:

I have four years of experience tutoring, mentoring, and contributing to educational publications. In high school, I tutored a fellow student in algebra. As an undergraduate, I was an English tutor at a charter high school for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. At Columbia, I mentored first-year law students and wrote for legal educational publications for law students and prisoners. As a litigator, I participated in a pro bono program mentoring high school students interested in entering the legal field. Currently, I work as a volunteer attorney at job training programs for formerly incarcerated individuals, providing individual coaching and developing and leading workshops on employment skills and employment discrimination law.

Writing Experience:

Through my work as a news writer, journal editor, textbook writer, litigator, and judicial law clerk, I have seven years of experience contributing to a diverse variety of leading publications, specializing in those that communicate complex concepts in easily understandable terms. As a writer for Join Together, the leading online news provider in the prevention and treatment of drug and alcohol use, I wrote feature articles and news summaries for e-newsletters boasting 3,000 and 18,000 subscribers. At Columbia, I served as a staff editor on the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, then an articles editor for its Jailhouse Lawyer's Manual, a unique two-volume legal handbook for prisoners, where I edited eight chapters and managed a team of six staff editors. I then spent two years as an associate attorney in the award-winning employment litigation practice of a highly-ranked global law firm, where I edited and wrote for authoritative treatises and nationally-disseminated news update publications. I currently write judicial decisions as a law clerk to a Chief Administrative Judge at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency enforcing federal employment discrimination laws. I am also a policy advocate for the New York State Bar Association, where I wrote a committees formal nomination letter successfully persuading the Bar to elect our model legislation as an official legislative priority for 2013.

Legal Experience:

As a casebook writer, employment litigator, volunteer attorney, and judicial law clerk, I have developed extensive expertise and analytical skills on a broad range of sophisticated legal issues. At Columbia, I wrote case notes for a supplement to the #1 employment law casebook and served as an articles editor on the Columbia Human Rights Law Review. As an employment litigator at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, I handled high-stakes, high-pressure, high-profile matters. For the past year, I have been working as a judicial law clerk at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and a volunteer attorney at Hour Childrens Hour Working Women Program. At Hour Children, I translate my expertise into easily understandable terms by developing and leading workshops on employment discrimination law for formerly incarcerated women seeking to reenter the workforce. As a law clerk, I help to enforce federal employment discrimination laws by drafting judicial decisions in cases filed against federal agencies in eight states.

I would be thrilled for the opportunity to bring my skills and my passion to your next endeavor. With dedication and hard work, together we can achieve success!
