"I have worked for several years as a tutor through the non-profit 826 and as an Essay Consultant, helping students write personal statements for college applications. I've written and published five novels as a Ghostwriter and am a member of IAPWE. I'm also in the process of finishing my own novel and a short story collection. Currently, I work for a non-profit which offers competitive professional development seminars for teachers with the goal of providing them with the tools to teach about atrocities/human rights violations (the Holocaust, slavery, recent events at the US border, etc), using writing to develop empathy in students. I've attended the seminars myself and continue to learn each day from this global network of teachers.

When working with students, I encourage them find their own voice and style of writing. I enjoy watching students grow and nurturing their love for learning. I tailor my tutoring style to the individual, and recognize that different students have different needs. I find it important to connect with students, and seek to make learning fun!

I am a recent graduate of the MFA in Writing program at Sarah Lawrence College, one of the top writing programs in the country, where I received a 4.0 GPA. Originally from the midwest, I received a BA in International Studies from the University of Wisconsin.

I'm excited to read your writing and help you find your own unique voice!" less...
