Vickie worked with me for three semesters at Harvard, teaching Junior Tutorial and Senior Tutorial while I was an undergraduate. Talking to her about culture, the humanities, and writing was one of the highlights of my college academic experience. She made something that could have been very stressful (like writing a 50 page paper entirely in Italian) both exciting and rewarding. Vickie was always in tune to what I was thinking and helped me find a sense of direction to a disparate set of ideas. It was wonderful how well she understood me and the material intellectually, from the most obscure theories and abstract concepts, and was always able to relate it back to real life. Through our conversations I was able to better understand what it was that I wanted to express. I always came back after our meetings inspired and ready to keep working. She was helpful in big picture writing — like structure and ideas — as well as the details like grammar and word choice. Vickie is always fun, well-organized, and supportive. Working with her on writing is a pleasure!
