My experience as a tutor, mentor and editor has provided me with the opportunity to help a variety of students, from kindergarteners just learning to read, to high school seniors writing the essays that will gain them access to top-tier universities. In my years as a teacher’s assistant for college freshmen, a workshop teacher at 826 Chicago, and a literacy tutor with at-risk kids in a low-income elementary school in Ohio, I’ve turned students who professed to hate reading and writing into confident and creative writers. I've also helped students excel in history, mathematics and particularly enjoy helping students exceed their own scoring expectations on the SAT.
As a graduate of the Oberlin College Creative Writing Program, I believe that every writing assignment, from historical essays to Japanese poetry to science term papers, has the possibility to enthrall and fascinate. I believe that all writing is creative writing, and that in every assignment can be approached with equal measures of enthusiasm and diligence. I am an excellent teacher of the building blocks of language, including phonics and grammar. As Joan Didion once said, “Grammar is a piano I play by ear.” I’ve helped dozens of students view grammar not as a stifling set of rules but instead, a toolbox for self-expression.
I look forward to working with you soon!
