I recently received my masters at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University, and I grew up in Washington, D.C. I went to college at Georgetown University and have loved reading and writing my entire life. While I enjoy tutoring all kinds of essay skills, english literature is my favorite. I love poetry, plays, and fiction classics -- everything from Shakespeare to Shelly! My dad is a lawyer, and has taught me the value of strong argumentation skills. I have published everything from short stories to journalistic articles, in my college paper or at The New York Times. Most students come to me for my encouraging spirit and fun attitude because I always want to make learning a positive experience. Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories. Not everyone finds their words easily, and some even feel ashamed to take time to express themselves. But I was a ballet dancer for ten years, and I think my rigor, determination, and sense of balance passes on to my students. I like to explore the city with my friends, see a play on the weekend, or take a book to central park for an afternoon of reading.
