I have six-plus years experience tutoring students in English, history, writing, and test prep. In addition to being a tutor, I am a writer/editor, and I hold a BA in English (minor in History) from UC Santa Barbara and an MA in English from New York University. Inspiring my students and sharing my knowledge and love of learning with them is my passion, and I have worked with students ranging from junior high up to adult students returning to college or pursuing advanced degrees.
I am a fastidious writer and editor, and focus on helping my students to learn not only the mechanics of grammar, but also to plan, organize, and write a coherent paper. My efforts have been rewarded with positive results and rave reviews, not only from my students but from many of their teachers as well. Additionally, I have extensive experience helping students to craft and hone their college admissions essays, graduate school statements of purpose, fellowship applications, etc.
In addition to tutoring in English, writing, and history, I am experienced with test prep, including NY Regents exams in ELA and History, as well as SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE prep. I focus not only on test-taking strategies but on improving students' grammar and vocabulary so they are better prepared for their future studies.
