ExperienceI am a certified teacher with over fifteen years of experience. I specialize in academic writing and reading skills as well as test preparation. I wrote the curriculum for an intensive university preparation program at a noted private school in New York City and developed specialized test-taking strategies for verbal and writing exams.
I teach engaging and informative classes for learners at all levels who are interested in reading or writing skills, or require a tutor to help them in their study of the humanities (e.g. literature, art history, U.S. and world history).
I am also a published author and can provide both academic and creative writing lessons, as well as tutoring in literacy, English, and college personal statement preparation.
HobbiesI'm a born traveler and enjoy visiting new places all over the world and meeting people from different cultures. I also enjoy the outdoors and try to spend as much time as possible in the mountains, at the beach, or relaxing in the park. However, reading and writing take up most of time--I'm a published fiction writer and essayist.
