I am a graduate of Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut with a degree in English, have published two books and am working on my third. I have helped students from coast-to-coast, while teaching at NYANA-New York Association for New Americans in Manhattan, and tutoring in Queens, Brooklyn, San Diego and Los Angeles.
When I taught in elementary schools in Santa Monica and Los Angeles and San Diego, my strength besides writing and reading English was play-leading and creativity involving new games and exercises for kids. My goal eventually is to help pre-schoolers with creative, positive feedback as they prepare for school where tests and exams await.
I have tutored fellow employees' children while working at KNX 1070 Newsradio in Los Angeles, where I was a Senior News Writer from 2004 to 2012, until leaving to write books and teach.
I've freelanced as a journalist writing news for nearly ten years as well as written stories for the LA Times, Los Angeles Magazine, The California Lawyer, Village Voice, Santa Monica Daily Press, and others.
