Do you want to be a better writer and reader? Improve your skills or your grades? Write a winning college admissions essay? I’m here to help. For the past 15 years I have been teaching writing, reading, and English as a Second Language at the college and graduate level and tutoring middle and high school students.
What sets me apart as a tutor is that I understand how to meet you where you are. I can help you figure out what you need to advance successfully. Everyone has great ideas--and so do you--but writing well requires skill to move from creative chaos to compelling prose. Through drafting, revising, and organizing, you can improve your mastery, your confidence and your grades one step at a time. When reading, even the hardest text can be decoded with effective strategies. My teaching style is engaged, interactive and individually focused.
As a private tutor, I’ve worked extensively with high school students helping them write college essays that will “wow” college admissions counselors. How do you create an essay that stands out in the crowd? By showing them how amazing you are, and showing what makes you the absolutely right student for them. At Brandeis University and Gordon College, I have taught undergraduates, graduates, and high school students to write and read effectively. Whether preparing a college essay for that dream school of your choice or figuring out what the 9th grade teacher wants for an essay on Lord of the Flies or succeeding in 7th grade English, I have spent years guiding students through the writing process.
My background includes a master’s from Brandeis in English, a BA in English with Honors from Trinity College, and a career as a journalist and magazine editor. I look forward to working with you!
