About Adrian

As a tutor, substitute teacher, and soon-to-be ELA teacher, my greatest satisfaction comes from seeing students gain self-confidence and achieve their goals. Each student is a unique learner, and I enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to be part of a child's development and success.

Whether crafting a college essay, preparing for the SAT, or simply brushing up reading and writing skills, I am here to help. My role as a tutor is to offer support and instruction as students grow and learn, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

More about me: I have my BA in English and American Literature from Brandeis University and my MA in the same from the University of Pennsylvania. In addition, I am a published author who specializes in personal essay writing. With over 20 years of experience in book publishing, I bring a wide range of experience to the students with whom I work. I am a full-time substitute teacher, college writing tutor, and am currently pursuing my teaching certification in New York state for middle and high school language arts.
