Bio

I am a dedicated educator who has spent her early professional life devoted to the study of poetry as a teaching tool. Through Arizona State University, I currently instruct Poetry in America's 'Whitman to Hip-Hop,' a survey of American poetry that provides underserved high-schoolers an opportunity to earn college credit, and become college ready.

I am a dedicated educator who has spent her early professional life devoted to the study of poetry as a teaching tool. Through Arizona State University, I currently instruct Poetry in America's 'Whitman to Hip-Hop,' a survey of American poetry that provides underserved high-schoolers an opportunity to earn college credit, and become college ready. In my most recent teaching positions, I have worked with all ages, from 18 months to 25+years, for various organizations, including Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania Children's Center, and Sarah Lawrence College.

Because of my extensive background in the subjects I am tutoring, as well as my Urban Education studies, I am a deeply knowledgeable, sensitive tutor with the ability to meet you where you are, and find solutions to suit your needs, ultimately helping you achieve your goals. I excel at helping high-schoolers transform their ideas about applying for college into fully-articulated, acceptance-earning essays and I am skilled at breaking down the complexities of AP Language and AP Literature courses, as well as those more advanced students will find in college classrooms. I have lots of training in Reading, Verbal Development, and Language Acquisition as well, and I have worked with many dual-language learners, as well as neuro-diverse learners, as they began to acquire and use language effectively. Because of my 6+ years of experience, and my fierce dedication to helping all people develop the skills they need to succeed, I will stay committed to assisting you as you improve and achieve greater success.

Because of my background as an English Major, and my familiarity with poetry from my MFA, I am uniquely equipped to tutor poetry, and literature more broadly, from any time period. I have assisted many students in K-12 settings with English coursework, including Vocabulary, Spelling, Phonetics, and Reading for the younger students and AP English Language, AP English Literature, Creative Writing, Poetry, and Rhetoric for the older students.

I attended the University of Pennsylvania where I graduated Suma Cum Laude, majoring in English with Honors in Creative Writing. I am well-versed in the tools and tactics necessary to turn something seemingly uninteresting, like Chaucer or Homer, into a subject of deep intrigue and delight. I have spent the last 2+ years teaching canonical works of poetry to high-schoolers, so I am very familiar with the kind of literature being taught today, and how best to make those texts fun for students. English was and is my favorite subject-- let me show you why it can be yours too!

I recently earned my MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence, where I tutored first-year students at SUNY Purchase in writing-focused seminars. I am currently teaching writing and poetry to junior and senior high-schoolers in underserved communities through a program that prepares them for college and offers them college credit. All of these experiences have equipped me to provide engaging, critical writing feedback on any genre or subject-- together, we will discover how you best express yourself.
