I graduated from Middlebury College with a BA in English in 2012 and joined Teach For America the following fall. Here, I taught English to a wide variety of students, including English language learners and students with learning disabilities. I quickly realized that to have a lasting impact on my students, my lessons needed to be engaging! This is a fundamental part of my teaching philosophy. I have experience working with students from elementary school through adulthood, and I've also worked in the editorial departments of various publishing organizations, including WW Norton and the New England Review. Helping others develop the skills in reading, critical thinking, and writing that they need to succeed is my passion. Whether you are looking to build basic literacy skills or perfect a graduate school essay, I would be happy to use my expertise and energy to help you. When not working with students, I'm part of the recruitment team at Teach For America, and I enjoy drinking coffee, swimming, and playing with my cat, Sampson.
