About Kay

Teaching has been my passion for the last sixteen years. I began teaching in Zimbabwe in a rural African village with the Peace Corps and I continued teaching internationally and at the University level.

For the last ten years, I've been teaching in New York City and currently I teach at one of the top ranked public high schools in America. I specialize in helping students find their voice to showcase their unique life experiences in the college essay. And I've also published a guide to overcoming writer's procrastination on Amazon on the subject of paper writing and overcoming procrastination.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you build upon your strengths to find your voice in writing. If you are a writer who is plagued by that feeling of "I don't know where to start" or if you dread the words "essay" or "paper," please reach out to me! I've had so much success transforming reluctant writers and I'd love to help you transform yourself from reluctant to empowered.
