I am a doctoral student and teacher at Northwestern University's department of English. I specialize in early modern literature, but I love discussing texts from a wide range of periods and traditions. As an undergraduate I served as a "Writing Fellow," working with my peers to develop the potential of drafts of their written work. I spent the year between undergraduate and graduate school teaching English in France to 18-24 year olds.
I have lived for extended periods of time in Spain, France and Germany. I am fluent in Spanish and French and have tutored beginning-advanced students in those languages. I am proficient in German and can tutor beginning and intermediate students. At Northwestern I have served as a teaching assistant for a wide range of courses, including “Introduction to Fiction," "Shakespeare" (both Intro and Advanced), "Walt Whitman," and literature of the 1960s through the present.
I am currently tutoring all ages (13-50) in language, literature, creative writing, philosophy, and culture, and I love working with my students to develop their written and oral communication skills, to help them improve their reading comprehension and to enrich their cultural knowledge. There are few things that make me happier than watching my students take their writing to the next level!
