I currently work as a copy-editor at a local newspaper, and am enrolled in an Applied Linguistics master's program.

I've been helping native and non-native English speakers with their English writing, reading, grammar and conversation skills since 2001, when I studied abroad in Paris. In 2005, I volunteered in Armenia as an English instructor, teaching journalists how to better write and develop their ideas in English. And just recently, from 2009-11, I led workshops on English and writing for Japanese administrators and scientists.

I enjoy teaching languages - whether it's French grammar or pronunciation, or English grammar and writing (I scored a 750 on my Writing SAT II's). I also find it incredibly fun and enjoyable to relate to kids, and to get them interested in learning and improving.

The uploaded picture was taken at one such "study session" with my twin nieces, now 14.

I studied abroad at the University of Paris VII in the academic year 2001-02 -- taking courses in Advanced Grammar, Existentialism, Art History, Theatre, and Translation -- and received my Bachelor's in French (with Honors) from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2004.

I also vacation in the south of France every summer with family, and have my taught my twin nieces how to speak with a perfect accent.

SAT Writing

I've been the main copy-editor at a newspaper in Watertown since 2004, and have mastered proficiency in English grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, paragraph organization, word usage, and overall reading comprehension. I'd be happy to impart that knowledge for students looking to improve their grammar, reading, and writing skills; successfully complete SAT Reading and Writing (my scores were 640 and 750, respectively) and ACT English tests; or simply increase their understanding -- and enjoyment -- of English literature.


I scored a 750 on my SAT II Writing test, with a perfect score in the essay section. I've since improved on those writing skills by writing flawless term papers and thesis projects; drafting speeches and memos at work; and occasionally submitting articles to local newspapers.
