"I work with students in English literature and essay writing, and coach high school seniors on their college essays. From 2010 to 2018, I served on the faculty at Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the top prep schools in the world, teaching English classes in their pre-college program. I hold a Master's degree in English Literature, and a BA in English Literature and Linguistics from Boston University.

With over 12 years experience, I am adept at creating a dynamic learning space that empowers students to develop into vibrant, fearless writers. I LOVE what I do. My teaching process is highly individualized to each student’s goals, personality, and talents. I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all textbooks or cookie-cutter worksheets. I create and customize teaching materials to fully engage each student.

As a college essay coach, I help students craft knockout, one-of-a-kind essays that get noticed. I’ve developed creative methods, tips and tricks to guide students through every stage of the writing process. I guarantee that you will be proud of your finished essays (and I’ll be beaming too!)!

If you’re interested in working with me, I offer a free 60-minute confidential consultation to all students and parents, with zero strings attached. Let’s chat by phone or video, get to know each other, and see if we’re a great fit!

I'm excited to listen, learn who you are, and help you excel as a writer, reader, and scholar. Contact me and tell me about you—your interests, needs and goals. I respond to all messages within 24 hours." less...
