Tutor Information


Hi! I have been teaching English literature and writing courses for over a decade. I hold a BA from Rice University and PhD in English from Rutgers, and am currently a faculty member in the Writing Program there. I teach courses on English literature, composition, and proposal writing for business and sciences. In each of my classes, I help students who have little or no experience with academic writing or research master the skills they need to succeed at the college level and beyond. In addition to this classroom experience, I have tutored students, ages 8 to 40, in all forms of writing, from high school essays to application letters to grant proposals, as well as test preparation and broader executive function and presentation skills. In my sessions, I not only help students to internalize strategies for effective writing and problem solving, but also to build confidence and appreciate the process of learning. I can boast of former students at many top universities (including Yale, Penn, Columbia, Brown, and Oxford) and graduate programs in a variety of fields. Most importantly, I help students take pride in their work and in each step of their intellectual journeys.
