I have extensive experience as a writing tutor, consultant and editor and am particularly skilled with helping ESL writers learn the nuances of English academic writing. My tutoring sessions are quite interactive and tend to be a dialogue between myself, the writer, the text and the intended audience. My background is quite interdisciplinary and this has made me an effective writing tutor for writers working with a wide array of topics.

My key goals are to help writers become better writers by learning skills and strategies in both the mechanics of English and in critically analyzing one's own writing.

I recently received my PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I worked at the Writers Workshop in the Center for Writing Studies. I also have two MFA degrees (in theater and fine art); I have taught on the college level and am also an accomplished visual artist.
