About Gail


Bio

Writing is my life. I have spent many years honing my craft, both as a writing instructor at the University of Pennsylvania and as a columnist at The Philadelphia Inquirer.

As the proud parent of a Lower Merion High School graduate (go Aces!), I understand the pressure students are under in an atmosphere that demands achievement.

Clear, well-reasoned writing requires practice and discipline. I focus on helping students navigate the rigors of writing in high school, college and beyond....

Writing is my life. I have spent many years honing my craft, both as a writing instructor at the University of Pennsylvania and as a columnist at The Philadelphia Inquirer.

As the proud parent of a Lower Merion High School graduate (go Aces!), I understand the pressure students are under in an atmosphere that demands achievement.

Clear, well-reasoned writing requires practice and discipline. I focus on helping students navigate the rigors of writing in high school, college and beyond. Guiding them in that pursuit has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life.

My journalism background informs how I teach writing. I emphasize economy of expression -- strong, succinct sentences with a clear line of reasoning and compelling presentation. I teach students how to express ideas more clearly.

Fun Facts: I am a fanatic for crossword puzzles and movies (I am on a first-name basis with everyone at The Bryn Mawr Film Institute). I read voraciously. I am the parent of three: one daughter, one cat, and one very-high maintenance little dog.
