"A former professor of literature and writing and a published author, I have have been honored to win Excellence in Teaching awards at two universities. I am very passionate about what I do and approach all of my teaching and tutoring with my trademark enthusiasm and humor. Although I have the expertise and experience that comes with a PhD, I can promise you I am no stuffy academic and will never make you sit through boring lectures or tedious drills. I believe people learn best when they are engaged, when they are lit up and having fun, and when they can see how the subject matter applies to their own lives, and why it matters.

I began tutoring as a graduate student, working as a Writing Center tutor at my university, and also for private tutoring companies, helping students with everything from improving their vocabulary for the SAT, to tackling ESL concerns, to penning the most compelling college essays. During my doctoral studies, I became the Assistant Director of University Writing at Brandeis University, and continued to work with private individuals in test prep, literature, history, art history, and writing. As a professor, I taught a wide variety of classes, including honors classes and so-called "lab" classes for those in need of extra help, in literature (particularly American literature), expository and creative writing, and philosophy and the arts. I also continued to work one-on-one with many students on independent study and capstone projects. All of this occurred at a business university, where my students typically reported they had neither interest nor aptitude in writing, literature, or the arts and humanities more broadly. This fact did not deter or discourage me, because of my fundamental belief that with enough enthusiasm and knowledge I can show any student the beauty and power of words, and the skills and strategies to wield that power effectively. I can do the same for you or your child." less...
