I went to the University of Pennsylvania (C’ 21) where I double majored in Linguistics & Cognitive Science and graduated magna cum laude. Currently, I'm working towards a Masters in the Evolution of Language and Cognition at the University of Edinburgh! I've been working professionally in college advising for four years. I emphasize a holistic approach to advising. I'm here to guide my students through every step of the process, from creating the perfect school list and admissions narrative, through submission and finally, interview prep. I have extensive experience teaching both the SAT and ACT allowing for the seamless pairing of tutoring and admissions guidance. Finally, as someone who studies and writes about language for a living, I am a precise and effective editor. There is nothing more satisfying than helping students manifest the best possible version of their writing, and themselves, for their applications!
