I am a passionate, patient tutor with extensive experience as an educator, writer, and attorney, and I would love to use my skills and expertise to help you achieve your goals!
- Education -
For my undergraduate degree, I attended the Boston University Honors Program on an academic scholarship, majoring in English and philosophy. In 2006, I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, with Distinction in English, and won the John N. Findlay Award for Philosophy.
I earned my law degree from Columbia Law School, where I graduated with honors in 2009 as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
- Teaching Experience -
I have a breadth of experience teaching and contributing to educational publications. My tutoring experience dates back to high school, when I volunteered as an algebra tutor. As an undergraduate, I was an English tutor for a ninth grade student through a community service program at MATCH Charter Public School. At Columbia Law School, I contributed to two educational publications: a best-selling legal textbook and a legal manual for prisoners. I worked with adult learners at two NYC job training programs, where I provided one-on-one coaching and developed and led interactive workshops on employment skills and employment discrimination law. I have been a private tutor through WyzAnt since November 2012, and I recently joined the faculty of Essex County College as an adjunct instructor of writing and criminal justice.
Through these positions, I have engaged students from all levels of expertise and education, from graduates of elite schools to prisoners without high school diplomas. This experience has given me the essential skills to tailor my approach according to individual students' needs.
- Writing Experience -
I love to find the perfect words and craft the perfect piece. Through my work as a news writer, journal editor, textbook writer, blogger, and attorney, I have over seven years of experience contributing to a diverse variety of leading publications. As a writer for Join Together, the leading online news provider in the prevention and treatment of drug and alcohol use, I wrote feature articles and news summaries for e-newsletters boasting 3,000 and 18,000 subscribers. At Columbia, I served as a staff editor for the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, then an articles editor for its Jailhouse Lawyer's Manual, a unique two-volume legal handbook for prisoners, where I edited eight chapters and managed a team of staff editors. As an attorney, I have edited and written for authoritative treatises and nationally-disseminated news update publications. I also served as a judicial law clerk at a federal agency, writing judicial decisions to enforce federal employment discrimination laws. Currently, in addition to teaching college writing courses, I work as a legal blogger for the Berniard Law Firm, where I write original blog posts analyzing recent developments in personal injury and insurance law.
I would be thrilled for the opportunity to bring my skills and dedication to your next endeavor. With the right strategies and some hard work, we can achieve anything!
