Hi there! I am seeking to help with reading comprehension, grammar, history and English. As a licensed attorney, I have significant experience with writing and editing, and can help at any level, and any stage of the writing process! I have an incredible passion for teaching and helping others.

About me:

I am a PhD student focusing on International Affairs (world history) at Rutgers University. In addition, I hold a law degree (JD) and MS degree in International Affairs (highest honors). I am a magna cum laude college graduate with a specialization in International Studies and Political Science.
