As a recent college graduate, a former transfer student, and an undergraduate researcher with the Berkeley chapter of the Ronald E McNair Scholar's program, I know how to set goals and more importantly how to achieve them. My experience has also taught me the value of collaboration and flexibility which I have found to be the most useful skills one can have.

I specialize in English, both reading and writing. My specific expertise lies in proofreading, editing and development of the critical skills necessary in literary analysis. However, I am comfortable with all forms of writing, from the creative to the technical. I graduated with a B.A. in English from UC Berkeley with minors in Linguistics and Creative Writing. I have tutored a wide range of people, in a wide range of subjects, and I have never had someone walk away without a better grasp of the subject matter.

I look forward to working with you, and if you have any specific questions that need answering, feel free to message me.
