About Joan

I am enthusiastic about working students to improve their skills in order to advance their education. I love sharing the knowledge I have within particular subject areas, equipping students to better approach their studies, and ultimately seeing them to success.

I am especially interested in helping students put together their college application essays. I conduct alumni interviews for my alma mater and recently taught an undergraduate course that helped students put together personal statements for medical school. I also love editing and proofreading essays.

All of this stems from past experiences as an English minor in college, editing for a campus international magazine for two years, writing and editing currently published scientific papers, as well as successfully applying to both undergraduate and graduate schools.

I look forward to working with you!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to learn more! My schedule is pretty flexible.
