I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you on your writing goals. I have a Master's of Arts Degree in English Literature and Composition from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with an emphasis in creative writing. For the past thirteen years, I have taught composition, literature, reading, argument, rhetoric, and technical writing both at a university and community college. In 2015, I won the Lecturer Teaching Excellence Award for my commitment to my students' intellectual growth. Now, I want to help individual writers strengthen their skills in essays, college applications, SATs, cover letters, or pet projects.

As a content writer, editor, and proofreader for a small textbook company specializing in K-12, I have experience in researching and crafting material for students who struggle with comprehension, vocabulary, and reading. The textbooks' subjects cover a diverse range, including American history, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Space Sciences, and World Mythologies. From my experiences as instructor, researcher, and writer, I know the frustrating, yet satisfying reward of creating cohesive, clear, and thoughtful writing.

I am flexible, detail-oriented, friendly, and organized. I can employ a variety of tutoring styles to adapt to each student's needs. I hope to empower writers by providing strategies and techniques that apply to the classroom, workplace, or everyday life.
