Are you a high school or college student struggling with reading
, and grammar
? Do you require experienced instruction and high level support for SAT
preparation, AP challenges, or those all-important college/graduate school application essays? With hard work, strong effort, honesty, and commitment, together we can achieve success. In short, I want my students to become the best writers and communicators they can possibly be. Grammar, punctuation, spelling
, and written and verbal clarity are not mere "interests" for me; quite simply, they are passions. I have consistently boosted my student's scores on all standardized Verbal and Writing testing. In many cases, I continue to offer assistance with both the Common Application and "school specific" essays. My investment
in a student's education reaches far beyond test day.
I am a professional writer and editor
by trade. A short synopsis of my experience is as follows: Editor of the Emory University award winning college paper; completion of a rigorous combined B.A. and M.A. degree program in English
by age 21; a stint on Capitol Hill as a Congressional speech
writer; nine years as Senior Writer, Producer, and Interviewer for MTV Networks in NYC; a decade as an Executive Producer at United Stations Radio Networks in NYC; and, most recently, a consultant for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in Washington, D.C
. for their 2013 core initiative, The American Graduate. This last experience with PBS and NPR stations cemented my desire to return to tutoring full-time to address the sobering decline in education and, perhaps, do what I do best.
As the mother of three, two of whom have graduated from notable Universities and my youngest now midway through his studies in Boston, I have learned firsthand how to strengthen and ingrain the essential skills of reading comprehension and proper written expression through a recipe of hard work and equally fun methodology. With more than 20 years of tutoring experience at top tier private and public high schools and universities in Massachusetts and Maryland, and more than 500 hours of WyzAnt tutoring alone, I am uniquely qualified to provide the highest level of support possible.
