I am passionate about reading and writing. And I know how to transmit that passion to my students. That's why I have a proven track record of helping students develop the motivation to do the hard work required to write well. Whether you're a 4th grader or a high school senior, essays, school projects, and reports can be challenging--especially when you lack confidence or are missing important skills. That's where I come in. I listen deeply; I assess; I strategize with each unique student so that his/her specific reading and writing goals are met. Everyone has strengths. I build on those. Everyone has areas of weakness. I co-create lessons for skill-building. And I expect students to work as hard as I do.
I have tutored students in grades 4-12 in reading comprehension, writing, and Biology/Life Science. I have helped adults read for meaning and write with conviction. I have assisted students of all ages to uncover their inborn writing ability.
My background: I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from my undergraduate liberal arts college and have 9 years experience as a public school teacher. I received a Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Fairfield University and am a novelist, essayist and scholar. I love my work.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
