I am a graduate of the University of Richmond with a major in Psychology and a minor in English. I spent the majority of my college career tutoring fellow students in writing and English. In particular, I worked with students on thesis building, organization, sentence structure, and grammar. I had the privilege of working in the Writing Center as well as handling the writing of entire classes as a Writing Fellow. While I loved the professional aspect of working at the Writing Center, I also enjoyed seeing the same student multiple times and sustaining a personal relationship with them in which they felt comfortable with me. I want all students to gain confidence in their writing ability, especially because I feel that being a good writer is useful in any career path they may choose. I was the Executive Assistant to Ivan Held at Putnam books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).

Currently, I am a Master of Social Work (MSW) student at NYU in New York, NY. For the past two years, I have expanded my English and Writing tutoring to include ACT/SAT Reading and Writing tutoring.

ACT English

The biggest difference between the ACT and SAT is time; the ACT asks students to answer more questions in less time. I can teach students how to work efficiently and in a timely manner during this exam.

English

As a Psychology and English major, I have a lot of experience writing both scientific and descriptive essays. I can teach students how to decipher themes in the novels, books, and short stories they read in class. As a following step, I can show them how to adapt what they learn into comprehensive essays.

Grammar

Grammar is mostly definitely the foundation for good writing ability. I can teach students grammatical basics and give them the confidence to write great sentences and essays.

Proofreading

Proofreading your work is an excellent skill to have in school and in the real-word. I can teach students tricks on how to objectively proofread and examine their writing.

Reading

Learning how to comprehend what you read, especially in high school English classes, can help students become better writers themselves. I am able to help students memorize and understand specific themes in the novels and literature they read for test-taking or other purposes.

SAT Reading

It's important that students learn how to understand what they read in this section; the long paragraphs can at first be intimating for SAT-takers. I can teach students how to read calmly and careful during this section of the SAT.

SAT Writing

I can help students learn to write in a consistent and concise manner; this is an important skill-set to learn for the SAT Writing section.

Writing

I worked as a Writing Tutor at my University, and I can specifically help students with thesis building, organization, grammar, sentence structure, and how to write scientific, descriptive, and narrative essays.
