I have a B.A in Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. I spent a year as a research student at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom and am currently applying for graduate degrees in the field of International Development and Policy. I have years of experience tutoring English Literature, Writing, and Reading Comprehension both in my hometown of Phoenix, as well as in inner-city New York and abroad. I recently returned from volunteering as an English teacher in Northern India, where I worked with both elementary-age children and older students to develop their English speaking, writing, and reading skills. I am extremely passionate about transferring my love of the written word to my students! The joy of writing is something that everyone can experience and I love helping students take on the challenge and gain confidence in their craft. While I was born and raised in the Phoenix-area, I have traveled extensively and have lived in Saudi Arabia, England, and Alaska. During my personal time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, and reading just about anything I can get my hands on. I look forward to offering students my dedication and patience as they work to achieve their goals and help give them the confidence to do so boldly.
