I am currently a graduate student in the University of Iowa's Playwright's Workshop, but I'm in Chicago for the summer and interested in tutoring opportunities. My passions are writing
(creatively and analytically) and teaching. While most of my experience is teaching at the collegiate level, I have also worked with high school and middle school students as well.
Educational Background: Prior to pursuing my current degree, I received a Masters in Literature
from the University of Chicago. My undergrad degree is from Boston College, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa and majored in English
and Theater Arts.
Professional Background: I've worked in the editorial departments for both Cengage Heinle ESL
Publishing and also at the University of Chicago Press. Since going back to school, I've continued to work for Cengage as a freelance writer and editor
Area of Specialty: Obviously from my background, my strongest teaching areas are English literature, grammar
comprehension and writing skills. I've tutored writing and reading regularly since graduating college. I also am available to tutor in theatre
arts and playwriting. If you've ever had an interest in developing a script or learning more about the magical world of theatre, I'm happy to discuss these areas as well. My award-winning plays have been produced around the country.
Teaching Experience: I am currently a graduate teacher at the University of Iowa, and love teaching. This past year I taught History
of Theatre and Playwriting I. In History of Theatre, I required my students to write a well-developed, compelling, and argumentative research paper. I helped walk them through all aspects of the project including researching and note-taking, drafting, revising, editing
and how to properly cite resources.
Editing and Proofreading
: In addition to tutoring services, I am also available to edit and proofread documents, resumes, college essays, etc.
3 hours notice required
My rate is $50/hour for one on one tutoring. I am also happy to edit any documents for $30/hour.
