I am a writer and a New York State-licensed teacher. I believe that writing is the core practice of learning. To that end, I particularly enjoy working with students of all ages to improve their writing in diverse areas, including English, Social Studies and test preparation. My tutoring technique builds on two years of experience teaching English in New York City public high schools. I also draw on several prior years of teaching adults engaged in college or careers, both here and in Germany.

I was awarded an MA by The University of East Anglia after completing their graduate writing program, the oldest one of its kind in the United Kingdom. After moving to New York City, I received a second graduate degree and teaching credentials from the University of Long Island in Brooklyn. My work and my travels have shown me the myriad ways in which every student is different and why adapting to each student is the most important ability of any educator.

Study Skills

I have more than ten years' experience teaching and tutoring to various populations. This include 2 years as a New York City high school teacher, where after-school tutoring and study skills mentoring were critical to the success of my students. When I teach study skills, I teach them in context, through goal-setting and strategy-building.
