« Trisha is a highly dedicated tutor and a gifted writer in her own right. She is incredibly sensitive to students’ needs, abilities, and motivations. We met as academic colleagues—a role in which I was able to observe her brilliance in literary criticism, as well as her passion for teaching. Any student would be extraordinarily lucky to be tutored by her, and a gifted student would be spurred to excel and achieve their full potential. I cannot recommend Trisha highly enough. »

Harvard PhD, UC Berkeley BA, experienced tutor in literature and writing for gifted students

Methodology

I tailor my tutoring program to the writing needs and literary interests of each student. I develop their awareness of literary history, their ability to read and analyze literature in a sophisticated and pleasurable way, and their skills in clear and complex writing. Alongside developing this unique program, I help students with their writing assignments for school or university, and with essays for applications (university or postgraduate school).

Experience

I have a PhD in English literature from Harvard and a BA from UC Berkeley. I offer literature and writing tutoring for gifted students, age 12 to adult. I have experience teaching students at all levels, including multiple years teaching middle school students and Harvard undergraduates.

Trisha's CV

EDUCATION

Harvard University

Ph.D. English, 2017

Thesis: Back Stories: Human Embodiment and the Novel
Abstract: My thesis describes the relation between literature and the phenomenology of the body’s physical back surface. Through formal analyses of novels by Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Thomas Hardy, I argue that the perceptual asymmetry between the front and the back of the human body is deeply associated with fundamental narrative frameworks and concerns.

Trisha is a highly dedicated tutor and a gifted writer in her own right. She is incredibly sensitive to students’ needs, abilities, and motivations. We met as academic colleagues—a role in which I was able to observe her brilliance in literary criticism, as well as her passion for teaching. Any student would be extraordinarily lucky to be tutored by her, and a gifted student would be spurred to excel and achieve their full potential. I cannot recommend Trisha highly enough.
