I am a trained professor experienced working with college/graduate students in composition, critical reading and analysis. I have worked for Educational Testing Service to grade GRE essay exams, so I have the knowledge to know what constitutes a strong GRE essay. I have also worked with high school students to improve writing and debating skills. Additionally, I have taught ESL to older adults.

My PhD is in English literature from the University of California and my master's is in English from Columbia University. I am versed in many subjects: literature, art, anthropology, history, and social sciences. I love to help students achieve their goals in writing term papers or dissertations. My years of teaching have taught me patience and how to encourage students. My approach is to listen to the needs of the student and work together to set goals for what they want to get out of tutoring. I love empowering students to feel good about their talents and encouraging students to explore new avenues of learning. I love writing and am pursuing a writing career as a creative writer and I also do content writing for websites.

I like to begin tutoring with simple writing exercises to get the juices flowing. I make accommodations for students unique approach to learning. In order to achieve the goal of writing well, we will begin by analyzing the readings that are to be written about and discerning what to use as support and finally synthesizing the literature. This way, students are able to organize their writing, provide support for their ideas and properly use MLA or APA as needed.

Maya Angelou once wrote “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” For me, writing is a form of expression that requires letting go of what's being held inside and reveling in what one creates.
