About Mimi

I'm a professional writer and editor who loves to teach. I understand how challenging the writing process can be—and I'm here to help! I have 10+ years of experience editing and coaching teens and adults at work on application essays (high school, college, or graduate school), book projects, articles, academic papers, you-name-it. I also tutor students looking to improve their critical reading skills, vocabulary, or English.

When I tutor, I focus on providing support and encouragement, as well as powerful feedback that leads to growth. I'm a great fit for students who might feel anxious about writing, or even "stuck" on a particular writing project. I can help you jot your first ideas down on paper, polish your final draft, and/or everything in between. I'm also a great fit for creative writers looking for an open-minded, sympathetic, and razor-sharp reader.

I graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University with a degree in English and a certificate in Creative Writing. I hold an MFA from the Michener Center for Writers, where I was a James A. Michener Fellow. I've been awarded several other prestigious writing fellowships, and I've served as deputy editor for a nationally renowned literary magazine.

I'll look forward to discussing your needs with you! Please feel free to be in touch with any questions you might have.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Writing

I have 10+ years experience teaching and editing writing. I've led workshops, critiqued a diverse array of manuscripts, and edited a magazine.
