If you are looking for that rare blend of professional credentials, patience, a genuine love of the language
arts, and a sense of humor, I may be the ideal tutor for your child.
I am a published author, performance poet, and professional copy editor
for the biggest and best publishing houses. This means that writing
comprehension are not just things that I teach; I do them every day.
After earning MFA credits in Creative Writing and Literature
, I graduated with a Masters in Teaching and New York State/City certification to teach English
at the secondary school (grades 6 - 12) level. I am particularly comfortable and experienced in working with this age group, and devote thorough, one-on-one attention toward improving their writing and reading skills in English, Social Studies
, and any other required class or elective that requires writing and reading. This includes the SAT
and the frequently dreaded college entrance essay
I also teach students an often overlooked skill: how to proofread their work and effectively organize their thoughts.
I have designed several enjoyable exercises to help students overcome their fear or dislike of writing. Interestingly, these same exercises also benefit students who have a natural aptitude for creative writing! I absolutely welcome students who have a special interest in writing fiction or poetry, because creativity is often overlooked by English teachers who must constantly teach to some test or other.
I help students become confident, effective writers and solid readers--not just for school, but for life.
