About this tutor

I am a recent graduate of Williams College, obsessed with reading and writing and eager to pass my love and knowledge onto others. I majored in English and Russian, and in addition to studying literature, from the classics to contemporary works, I also write short stories. (I read and speak Russian as well.) In college, I won multiple awards for student writing and was a participant in a series of seminars reserved for advanced senior English majors. I wrote an honors thesis in the form of a novella about a group of Russian dissident poets in 1961, for which I was awarded a fellowship to conduct summer research in Moscow.

My tutoring experience includes six months of tutoring English language to Russian people while living in St. Petersburg, and one year of tutoring Russian language to students at Williams. I also founded a campus literary magazine and worked as its editor for four years, so I have experience editing in multiple genres, including critical essays, fiction, and poetry. Professors I had were appreciative enough of my writing abilities to ask me sometimes to read and edit work by their students and their own work which they were submitting for publication.

  • Bethany Battafarano

    Story is very clear, kind, and patient, and it's obvious that he loves the English language and writing.

  • Trevin Corsiglia

    Punctual, reliable, easy to talk to, helped my daughter immensely on both the verbal and the math section of the SAT. We had tried several tutors before, and while they were decent, they didn't show the level of enthusiasm nor the expertise that Story possesses. Highly recommend.
