I am a tutor of writing, English, and history. My students learn to craft clear and persuasive essays, to bring their voice, ideas, and experience into their writing, and to use evidence to highlight and support their ideas. I also help students doing research papers. If you are gearing up for the SAT or ACT, I am outstanding as a tutor of the English and Writing portions of those exams.

My background includes five years as a university professor and four years as a tutor in the LA area. In addition to my doctorate degree (NYU), my achievements include two published academic articles on United States culture and history. I just received my teaching credential in English (UCLA). I received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (2011, 2012, 2013) for my volunteer work with homeless youth.

In my tutoring, I am engaged, patient, and prepared to try different approaches, depending on the writing experience and strengths of the student. I am positive and affirm students' efforts. I insist that students use the tutoring session to work hard and practice good habits such as staying focused and asking questions. Let our work begin!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Social Studies

My dissertation researched the history of the civil rights movement and how it changed American culture. I have published two historical articles. As a visiting professor at Ohio University (2007 to 2009), I taught courses on U.S. history and popular culture, including courses titled "Foundations of African American Art and Culture" and "American Film and Social History."
