I'm an experienced journalist and writer with over five years of experience. My writing has been published in over 20 outlets, including The Daily Herald, Timeout Chicago, The New York Post, The A.V. Club, Vegetarian Times, Today's Chicago Woman, and many more. I have tutored 2nd graders in Reading and Writing and dramatically helped improve their skills and test scores. I have two degrees: a master's degree from the University of Amsterdam in European Studies, and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies (History and English) from Hofstra University, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa with honors. I am a former Fulbright scholar. I am skilled at interpreting poetry, literature, and helping with essays for English, History, Social Studies and Language Arts. I am an experienced proofreader and copy-editor with excellent knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style. When it comes to reading and writing, History, Social Studies, and English, I am the tutor that will help you dramatically improve your skills and boost your grades!
