I am currently a college professor of English, with expertise in teaching literature, writing, reading, study skills, and other liberal arts subjects.
I graduated from Williams College with a degree in English with honors and followed that passion to Sarah Lawrence College, where I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Writing. As a professor, I have experience teaching basic English skills, as well as advanced critical reading and writing techniques. My teaching and tutoring philosophy is based on encouraging students to explore their own voices while learning the fundamentals.
My students are challenged as well as supported; we work as a team to approach assignments with a can-do attitude. I have experience partnering with ADD/ADHD and ESL students.
Focus on time management and study skills are also incorporated into each tutoring lesson. Knowing that no student is the same, I do not use prefabricated lesson plans. Each lesson is designed for your student, and your student alone.
I also help students prepare for the Reading and Writing portions of the SAT exam and the Verbal portion of the GRE exam. Typically, I work with students of all ages, elementary through graduate school.
I have a strong knowledge of and enthusiasm for the subject of English and writing. I am available days, nights, and weekends for tutoring sessions. I look forward to meeting you, and answering any questions you might have.
