I am a former university lecturer in history with a PhD and published articles. I have taught history classes to undergraduates and adult learners, and I work regularly with teenagers as a volunteer humane educator at a local animal shelter.

I have a deep understanding of how to construct a well-argued, well-written essay across all subjects. I can help students shape their arguments and formulate an organized paper. In addition, I am available to assist students with their college admissions essays.

In addition to writing, I can assist students with grammar, vocabulary, and of course, understanding history!

I am a warm, patient woman who will listen closely to the needs of my students and their parents and target my tutoring sessions to fit the specific goals of each individual.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any specific questions about my tutoring services.

I look forward to working with you soon!

American History

I hold a PhD in history, and have extensive experience teaching the subject at the university level. I assist students with essay writing and how to tackle multiple choice questions.


I am a published author with extensive experience teaching students to write clear, concise, and persuasive essays. Paying meticulous attention to detail, I help students edit their work and learn to identify their own mistakes, so that they can improve their own proofreading abilities.
