I am a writer, educator, and social worker who has been actively tutoring for the past 4 years. I began tutoring at Penn State's writing center, where I worked with undergraduate and graduate students from all fields of study to address their concerns about their personal essays and research papers to cover letters and thesis papers. Additionally, during my years at Penn State, I was fortunate enough to become an Editor of Penn State's Undergraduate Literary Magazine, Kalliope. At UPenn, I worked in a non-profit organization called Achieve-Ability, where I tutored adults and children on college essays and personal statements. In collaboration with my students, I created individual academic plans to help them reach their goals and helped them come up with study skills which suits their learning style. I am very adaptable to students needs and work with a student-center framework and will go where they need assistance the most, and work from there. I am a published writer and some of my work can be seen in Poetry Quarterly, The Houston Literary Review, Lucid Rhythms and Mad Swirl. I have also freelanced for The Centre Daily Times, State College's independent newspaper: Voices, Demand Media Studios and currently I freelance for oDesk.
