With a love of literature and formal training in playwriting and screenwriting (BFA, NYU) I have always had an affinity for words and self expression. Language is one of the characteristics that distinguishes human beings from the rest of the animal kingdom. We are social animals, and we need language to succeed in life. My focus is on helping people to become better communicators, through language in all its forms. I strive to create a supportive yet challenging environment for my students, to best promote their successful learning and improvement.
My background is in writing. I studied theatre and cinema in New York, and was trained by working professionals in the film and performing arts industry.
I have an excellent understanding of grammar, syntax, and form. I can help to get you writing clearer and cleaner, and to enjoy doing it. The forms I can assist with are expository writing, essays, creative, critical analysis, and dramatic writing (plays, scripts).
I recently moved back to the US, after 4 years living in France. There I worked as a language consultant and ESL teacher for working professionals and business school students. At the same time, I studied french, a beautiful and complex language. This gave me an even richer appreciation for English. I look forward to sharing this with you, and helping you to become a better communicator.
