I am currently a PhD student in English at the University of Buffalo. Before coming to Buffalo, I was a writing and English tutor for three years at Rutgers University, where I also earned a BA in English literature and a minor in French language. My main area of expertise is English literature, writing, and grammar. I am also capable of tutoring SAT English and Spanish. I have experience working with students of all ages, from 10-22, in a one-to-one and small group setting. I work with students to determine what they want to develop and to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to make learning student-motivated and student-led. I find this helps students of all ages feel more confident in their abilities and creates an encouraging learning environment.
