I am passionate about reading and writing. And I know how to transmit that passion to my students. That's why I have a proven track record of helping students develop the motivation to do the hard work required to write well. Whether you're a 4th grader or a grad student, essays, school projects, and reports can be challenging--especially when you lack confidence or are missing important skills. That's where I come in. I listen deeply; I assess; I strategize with each unique student so that his/her specific reading and writing goals are met. Everyone has strengths. We build on those. Everyone has areas of weakness. I co-create lessons for skill-building. And I expect students to work as hard as I do.
I have tutored students in grades 4-7 on the STAR exam. I have tutored students studying for the SAT. I have helped adults read for meaning and write with conviction. I have assisted students of all ages uncover their inborn writing ability.
My background: I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from my undergraduate liberal arts college. My own GRE verbal score was at the 99th percentile. I have 9 years experience as a public school teacher. I will graduate this year from Fairfield University with a Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I am a novelist, essayist and scholar. I love my work.
May you take joy in your reading and writing; I hope you choose to share with me the very human journey of communicating through the written word.
