"I hail from Iowa City, Iowa, but have spent the last decade in California and abroad. During my travels, I lived in South Korea and China, teaching and tutoring a wide variety of subjects to a wide range of students(ages 5 to 50, all skill levels) with a particular emphasis on SSAT/ HSPT/ ISEE/ ACT / SAT prep, college essay writing, and reading comprehension and analysis. I have a great deal of work experience -- from producing commercials, to handling public relations in the US Senate, to writing advertising -- but most of my experience and my passion is teaching. I am also a published author and dramatic writing teacher." ...

" My experience with writers allows me to get the most out of my students, inspiring them to write focused essays and other writing assignments, taking advantage of their strengths to arrive at their best work. My mother is a writer and long time educator, and I think I get my patience from her! Teaching kids reading is also especially gratifying, as there is nothing like a good book -- even if it's on an iPad. I also teach math and enjoy working with students of all ages. I'm a native New Yorker who never plans to leave Los Angeles." ...
