I bring to my tutoring an extensive and varied educational and work history. After several years of running a small institute dedicated to professional development and public programs on issues of children, childhood, and education, I returned to teaching and tutoring adults and children, with a focus on teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL), reading, and writing. I have a background in program development and administration, ranging from a pilot program for graduate students of journalism to a university writing center to weeklong professional development institutes for teachers and other child development specialists. In addition to higher education, I have worked in nonprofit theatre, public library, and retail settings. As a freelance tutor, I have taught both English language learners and native English speakers at all ages and levels. I am a writer, photographer, and audio storyteller/producer, and I seek opportunities to use those tools to encourage and support reading, literacy, and language learning in any format. I hold a Master of Arts from New York University in Teaching English to Non-Native English Speakers at the College and Adult Level and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Law and Society.
