Ivy-League Grad English Tutor

Welcome! What are your strengths and weaknesses as a reader and writer? What specific aspects of English are most challenging for you? For example, are you a high school junior preparing for college entrance exams and/or application essays? Are you the parent of an elementary student who struggles with reading comprehension, grammar or vocabulary building? Perhaps you are a non-native speaker seeking a greater command of the English language for business or academic purposes. Whatever your individual goals, I will work intensively with you to help you develop greater mastery of critical reading and writing skills.

Currently, I am on the part-time faculty at Penn State teaching writing-intensive courses in college composition and literature. I graduated with a BA in English from Columbia University and received my MA and MFA from Wilkes University. I am certified to teach English to non-native speakers and enjoy working with students from different cultures. My editing experience includes several years at Macmillan and other publishing houses. My writing credits include published short stories and a recent award in the Lorian Hemingway Fiction Competition. I spent an interesting year working as a researcher for the documentary Kids For Cash.

As your tutor, I will first assess your specific needs, discuss your preferred learning style, and then work with you to develop a game plan to reach your goals. I like to integrate a variety of media into lesson plans in order to enrich your learning experience.

As a certified online instructor, I am willing to work with you through online delivery, if that is your preference. For in-person tutoring, I will be happy to discuss the most convenient meeting places for sessions once you contact me. I live in Dallas, Pennsylvania.

I am also available as an editor and proofreader, should you need expert help on writing project, including proposals, manuscripts or any other writing venture.

Thanks for reading my profile!
