Hello, students! I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English and a certificate in Theater and Dance, as well as an alumna of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, England, with a Master's degree in Text and Performance Studies and a specialist certificate in Shakespeare.

While in England, I was Director of the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company -- as well as the company's head College Admissions Counselor worldwide. My specialty is in full-scale college counseling services, including test preparation, curriculum and activity planning, navigating the college admissions process, writing and editing essays, and interview technique.

I have extensive experience tutoring the English/Reading and Writing sections of the SAT and ACT, and am a highly qualified editor, available for help writing and refining admissions essays, job application letters, and all other short-form prose. I am also a near-native speaker of French, with experience tutoring for academic courses, the SAT-II, and the AP exams in French. I work with high school and college students, as well as mature learners.

I look forward to working with you!
