I am a Yale graduate (B.A. English) with over 10 years of experience as a tutor to elementary, middle, high school and college students. My area of expertise is English, and I specialize in improving essay writing skills. I have coached many high school students on their college application essays. My former students now attend many prestigious universities including USC, UC Irvine and Yale. My background as a journalist and writer enables me to inspire young people to produce straightforward yet dynamic essays. I encourage writers to employ the active rather than passive voice, to avoid repetition through varied word choice and sentence structure, and to engage the reader through precise yet colorful vocabulary.
Additionally, I have coached young people in the art of public speaking as well as in theatre studies/acting.
Proven areas of successful tutoring/teaching include the following:
- Essay writing
- English: Vocabulary and Grammar
- SAT Verbal
- Public Speaking and Debate (High School World Public Speaking and Debating Champion: Aylesbury, England)
- Theatre (Yale Theatre Studies; Professional Stage Actress for five years)
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
