I believe wholeheartedly that everyone can learn how to write. Whether you are a young learner, a college student, or a professional, I can help take you to the next level by teaching you how to frame an argument, expand your critical thinking skills, and make connections between two disparate ideas. I can also help you with your English Language assignments, as well as help you to hone your grammar, proofreading skills, public speaking skills, and reading skills. I have tutored grade school students (including my own) who are just learning the basics. I have helped undergraduate and graduate students, including those for whom English is their second language, and I have helped mid-career professionals who needed a refresher. Categorically, I believe that confidence, patience, planning, and practice make the difference between individuals who become strong writers and those who do not. Let me help you or your child become a better thinker and writer.
My entire career has been dedicated to writing and writing well. Be that as a speechwriter, editor, grant writer, or tutor, I am adept at articulating a point and helping others learn how to do so, too. I have worked in the United States Senate, on Presidential campaigns, and as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kyrgyzstan. Currently, I serve in a senior staff position leading all fundraising initiatives for a major nonprofit organization; and yet, my love of writing drives my desire to help others learn how to write better. I graduated with Highest University Honors from Northeastern University, where I received the President's Award for Diversity and the Matthews Distinguished Honors Scholarship for Critical Undergraduate Research. I then received my M.A. degree from New York University.

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.
I have a B.A. in Theatre Performance from Northeastern University. I also have an M.A. in Art & Public Policy from Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, one of the best schools for the performing arts nationally and internationally. I have worked at major regional theaters throughout the country, including American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA, Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, CT, George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, NJ as well as Circle in the Square in NYC. I have also worked for major playwrights like Anna Deavere Smith and performance artists like Karen Finley.
