I teach English at the college level. I have a Ph.D. in English literature, and I love helping students write with more confidence. I have 20 years of experience in the college classroom and can help you prepare to enter college with the writing skills you need to succeed in your first semester. I can help with reading and writing test prep, as well as any projects where you need some support.

I love to discuss literature and how to be a better reader and writer. My specialty is Shakespeare but I can help with any literature! All of my classes are discussion based, so tutoring is a natural extension for me! I also have a high schooler who just completed a year of virtual high school, so I know how hard this time is for students in high school and college. Having one-on-one time with a caring and dedicated teacher can make all the difference for your success. The words most often used about me in my course evaluations are "caring" and "enthusiastic," and I definitely bring that same approach to my work as a tutor.

I have a PhD in Shakespeare Studies from UCLA and have taught in college classroom for over 20 years. I can help you with your projects and for being more prepared for your writing and reading assignments. I know what college professors are looking for in your writing assignments, so one program I have had great success with is a "college bridge" program. In "college bridge," you will complete a college-level writing assignment in several steps with me. We will have one-on-one meetings after every step so you can get individualized feedback on your writing. This has been a major confidence-builder for students who have completed the program the summer before entering college, but it could also work for high school sophomores and juniors!

Feel free to contact me to schedule a lesson or series of lessons. I look forward to reading and writing with you!
