Experience

I am an award-winning journalist with a decade of professional writing experience. During my career, I have become proficient at writing accurately, quickly, and with finesse. As a tutor, I am able to help my students improve their own writing and reading, whether the goal is applying to a college, refreshing grammar skills, or preparing for a test.I attended New York University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in History. I also attended Columbia University, where I received an M.S. with honors in Journalism.My career has involved working as an editor and a writer, as well as working as a copy editor and writing coach, helping others apply for schools and grants, and writing manuscripts. I enjoy working with others individually, particularly when my efforts are able to help them be successful. Since each student is different, my philosophy is to adapt to the needs of each individual student.I tutor students in English, public speaking, grammar, persuasive writing, expository writing, and college essays. Additionally, I am able to help students with reading, grammar and mechanics, journalism, and ACT or SAT test preparation.In addition to my work, I like to travel, bake, cook, and read long-form journalism and history.
