"I'm a writer and editor with over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I specialize in teaching English, reading and writing to all age groups and for a variety of purposes (school, business, test prep, college admissions, job applications, public speaking, ESL, publication and more).

I received a double BS in Biology and Writing from MIT. I then earned an MFA in Writing from Columbia U and a PhD in English and Literary Arts from U of Denver. I taught academic and creative writing and also worked as a writing center consultant at both Columbia and U of Denver. In addition, I've taught writing to incarcerated writers and at shelters for people experiencing homelessness, addiction and domestic violence.

My creative work appears in top national and international literary publications, including Best American Experimental Writing 2020, Black Warrior Review, Foglifter, SAND, and various speculative writing magazines. I've won significant prizes for my poetry and prose, and I've been awarded fellowships by the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, MacDowell, and Vermont Studio Center.

As an editor, I've worked with a wide range of writers, including Ivy League graduate students and professors, supporting them across all stages, from conceptualization to completion, for applications, essays, books, speeches, etc. I've also been a reader and editor for literary journals in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and hybrid texts.

I'm highly experienced and adaptable to a variety of needs and goals. I've worked with students/writers from all over the world and with almost all levels of experience (everyone except complete beginners in English.) I'm patient and innovative in my approach and techniques, and I’m very responsive to individual differences.

Because I'm new to this platform, I'm starting with a low hourly rate and a willingness to provide discounts for long-term tutoring and/or editing major projects. Get in touch to discuss possibilities and strategies!" less...
