I am a local writer, editor, and writing coach, and I have previously worked as an actor, theater educator, and horse trekking guide in South America. My life has been a mix of extreme outdoor travel and academic pursuits and I've had a lot of adventures along the way. I have extensive experience prepare students of all abilities for the Reading. English, and Essay sections of the SAT, and ACT, as well as the AP Literature test, AP Language test, and SAT II Literature test.

My specialty is working with students and writers at any stage in the writing process, whether for a school assignment or a college application essay. Together we can productively brainstorm, make a writing plan, or polish a final draft. I can help you translate your creativity and vision into compelling, powerful words.

My flexibility allows me to adapt my teaching to any student, regardless of ability. I have worked with special needs learners, ESL students, and elite performers--each student's goals are unique, so my teaching approach should be as well. I don't believe in rigid systems, but rather in collaboration. Let's discuss what your aims are and work together to reach them.

I am a friendly, supportive tutor and can help demystify the writing process. But my depth of knowledge and experience also serves elite students who are striving for perfect scores and admission to top universities. I will meet you wherever you are in the test prep or writing process and tailor an individualized learning plan. Let's get working!
