I am certified to teach high school English and have taught AP Literature and Composition, American Literature, Publication Design, 7th Grade Literature, British Literature and Shakespeare. I also taught graduate students at Columbia University Teachers College for several years.
I work with a number of private tutoring students, including several ESL students, ranging from second graders to college students, to adult learners in the workplace. I assist students with their current studies to reinforce and supplement what they are learning in school, provide guidance in writing research papers, serve as writing coach/editor, work to expand vocabulary, and prepare for exams such as the SAT, ACT, GED, and ASVAB. I also work with high school seniors on developing the essays that must be submitted with their college applications.
In addition to my work with students, I edit textbooks in reading, writing, and science.
I earned a BA from Yale, with a double major in drama and English. I hold an M.A. from Fairfield University in Communications and completed my doctoral work (ABD) at Columbia Teachers College. I am a published poet and author and an expert writing coach and editor.
My primary goal is to help students reach their full potential by leveraging their strengths and developing their weaker areas, while accommodating their individual learning styles and interests.
