Simone Polanen graduated from Harvard University in 2014 where she obtained her A.B. in Sociology and Visual and Environmental Studies. Originally from the Bay Area, Simone has been in New York for three years, where she's worked as a podcast producer and filmmaker. She lived in Seoul, South Korea where she taught English, test and interview prep and worked with students applying to MA, MFA, JD and PhD programs in the US and UK. Simone has also worked with middle school and high school students from China in an English immersion and college preparatory summer program held annually in Boston. Her students have gone on to schools such as Stanford, Columbia, Vanderbilt, Emory, and Juilliard. Outside of teaching, Simone is constantly watching movies and loves to trade film recommendations (West Side Story is one of her all time favorites!)

Simone once directed an all-female version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
