Academic goals





My Approach

I am passionate about education and a firm believer in one-to-one learning. My approach is highly personalized. I get to know each of my students and create a customized plan tailored just for them. Whether it is subject-specific tutoring, full-time or part-time homeschooling, college counseling, or graduate application support, I can guide students of all ages and all levels to reach their academic goals.


Beyond grades and skills, I focus on helping students build confidence, formulate goals, and realize their full potential. My teaching is always centered around the student and what they need: I meet students where they are and get them to where they want to be. From helping an elementary student catch up to grade-level standards, to counseling a high schooler on college admissions, to coaching a grad student through organizing and polishing a writing sample, I help students move forward. 


All of my services are offered in-person in the Boston area or remotely anywhere in the world. With years of experience in online teaching and tutoring, I ensure a seamless and interactive online experience for my students. I have worked with students in the Boston area, New York, and California, as well as Canada, the UK, and China. 


Victoria attended Tulane University in New Orleans, where she graduated summa cum laude with a major in philosophy and a minor in English. After college, Victoria went on to Tufts University where she received an MA in philosophy. During graduate school, she wrote hundreds of pages, read even more, worked as a teaching assistant at Tufts and Harvard, and enjoyed the company of peers who love philosophy as much as she does. She has been tutoring and working with students for a decade. 


Soon after graduating from Tufts, Victoria moved to Shanghai to work for an American-owned education company (and eat as many dumplings as possible). There, she mastered the ins and outs of the college application process, working one-to-one with students applying to colleges and universities. Victoria's students have been accepted at schools including Cornell, Tufts, UCLA, Wesleyan, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, University of Wisconsin, Duke, Tulane, Northwestern, Bryn Mawr, and Colgate.


Victoria returned to Boston with a husband who shares her passion for education. She loves getting to know each of her students and their interests, supporting them through the application process, and helping them realize their full potential. In her free time, Victoria can be found on a mountain, in a book, or making her "famous" chili.
