"I specialize in English, Writing and History (American, European, and World History), and enjoy working with students on day to day assignments as well as larger research papers and test preparation. I have over eight years of experience working with grade school, high school, and college age students. I am very skilled at engaging each student based on his or her unique way of understanding the subject at hand. I like to help students discover ways to activate their creativity and put an individual stamp on their assignments, so that they can be interested and enthusiastic about managing what can sometimes be a daunting workload!

I have also done extensive SAT and ACT tutoring. I like to help students understand the specific types of questions these tests pose, and work with them to develop appropriate strategies so that they can do their absolute best. I enjoy helping them go through their mistakes so that they can better understand how to approach a similar question on future exams and complete their work with confidence and in the time allotted.

Finally, I have worked with students to develop and manage college application strategies and application essays. I enjoy helping students discover which institutions may best fit their future career and life goals, since there are so many options and the choices can seem overwhelming! Students I have managed the college application process for have gone on to Yale University, Columbia University, and Stanford University.

Originally from Dallas, TX, I have a degree in Art History from Columbia University. I am also an accomplished playwright and my works include "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (adapted from the Oscar Wilde novel), "The Genius!" (about the life of painter Salvador Dali), "Gloria" (an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald), and "The Boy With Seven Hearts," a multimedia theater project about the poet Federico Garcia Lorca that is currently being workshopped. My plays have been produced at Theatre Row, Playwrights Horizons, the Atlantic, The Looking Gl" less...
