Having been a teacher of Literature and Language Arts for over twenty years, I am also a freelance writer and a member of the Author's Guild of New York and the Writers Guild of America. I have been tutoring a variety of areas in these subjects to both students of all ages and adult professionals, and many still contact me when they need help with a problem since we always seem to develop a very good rapport.


Having been on sabbatical for the last three years while earning an MA in Humanities with an emphasis in Creative Writing, I'm more than anxious to get back into teaching and tutoring, and use all my new skills and enthusiasm.
