Harvard College (English)
Northwestern University (MBA)
I am a self-professed 'English nerd" who loves working with kids. In my current job as Founder and President of Mosaic Admissions, I guide high-school students and their parents through the often mystifying college admissions process. The service I enjoy the most is helping students craft persuasive, engaging application essays, and editing these stories so that they “hook” their reader and break through the competitive clutter. In doing so, I help students strengthen their writing skills, and am proud when a parent reports that his or her child is a far better writer because of my guidance.
I earned a BA in English and American Literature and Language, magna cum laude, from Harvard College, as well as an MBA in marketing and management strategy from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. I know the importance of using mass versus count nouns, the proper construction of correlative conjunctions, and how to avoid split infinitives, and love imparting this knowledge to my students.
I am a skilled writer who has a comprehensive knowledge of grammar and punctuation rules. On the literary front, I have expertise in 19th century American literature, particularly of the realism and naturalist movements. I wrote my honors thesis on Stephen Crane, and love to study the works of diverse authors such as John Cheever, Frank Norris, Frank McCourt, William Dean Howells, and Emile Zola. In my current position with Mosaic Admissions, I regularly proofread my clients' essays with speed and accuracy.

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.
