I work with students in English literature and essay writing, and coach high school seniors on their college essays. Since 2010, I've been on the faculty at Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the top prep schools in the world, teaching English classes in their summer program. I hold a Master's degree in English Literature, and a BA in English Literature and Linguistics from Boston University. With over 12 years experience, I am adept at creating a dynamic learning space that empowers students to succeed!

I LOVE what I do. My teaching process is highly individualized to each student’s goals, personality, and talents. I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all textbooks or cookie-cutter worksheets. I create and customize teaching materials to fully engage my students.

As a college essay coach, I help students craft vibrant, fearless, knockout essays. I’ve developed creative methods, tips and tricks to guide students through every stage of the writing process. I guarantee that you will be proud of your finished essays — and I’ll be beaming too!

If you’re interested in working with me, I offer a free 60-minute consultation to all students and parents, with zero strings attached. Let’s chat by phone or video, get to know each other, and see if we’re a great fit!

I'm excited to listen, learn who you are, and help you excel as a writer, reader, and scholar!

Contact me and tell me about you—your interests, needs and goals. I respond to all messages within 24 hours.
