"I am a professional writer of commentary and literary essays. I have a very high level of skill and experience in the craft of writing, and I love the English language. I have worked as a columnist and essayist for Newsday, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and other publications, including NPR, and have had my blog posts picked up by various online and academic outlets. My writing is also featured on a nonprofit website and in an international European forum.

I taught essay-writing, literature, and ESL at UNC. I have taught upper-level writing classes and writing workshops at other universities. I am also a judge of a literary contest, sponsored by a nonprofit.

I can help you improve your written and oral language skills and am gentle and encouraging of all student efforts. I can teach you just about anything about writing, language, or ELA that you would want to master. As an experienced writer, teacher, and editor, I can help you produce polished original writing in your own voice that you will be proud to submit. I can help you achieve on standardized tests and in your English classes. I work with elementary students, middle schoolers, high school students, college students, graduate students, and adult professionals.

I specialize in writing (both introductory and advanced), including essays, college essays, personal statements, research papers; academic papers, theses, business writing, creative writing, and literary writing.

My students have gained admission to Amherst, Barnard, Boston College, Boston University, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Fordham, Georgetown, NYU, Oxford, Princeton, Rice, St. Andrew's (Scotland), Tufts, U-Chicago, UNC, U-Penn, USC, Williams College, and Yale.
