Hello,

I am a graduate of UC Santa Barbara and received my B.A. in Literature and my minor in Professional Writing. I love helping people improve their English and writing skills and am currently working as a tutor with the L.A. County Library's Adult Literacy Program.

At the moment, I currently have a full schedule and am unable able to take on any new regular students. Please feel free to get in touch with me though if you would like me to proofread any prose or academic writing.

Thank you!
