ExperienceI am a professional writer and teacher who publishes and coaches all kinds of students.
I taught expository writing for 6 years, creative writing for 3 and have coached and edited people from all walks of life into college!
I have spent several years in Russia where I taught both English but also writing for professionals and tutored SAT, GRE and GMAT.
Finally, I speak Russian at a like-native level and also teach professionally.
HobbiesOnly two things can really clear my mind- cooking and writing. It's no accident then that I am food writer.
This is my approach to teaching writing-- helping people figure out what they want helping them how to say it. For exams, like in journalism, I know what the readers are looking for and can give those KEYS to the student. There is no secret to great writing-- but there are lots of tips that can be individualized, and maybe some secrets to those pesky exams like SAT.
I have been able to get non-native speakers living abroad into American and English colleges and graduate schools, including several MBAs.
My students always have good rapport with me, and I try to always keep the gears of the lesson switching so that we don't get bored. I want you to look forward to my lessons so you're having fun when you learn. This is not more school. This is a way to make it more round.
