I believe great writing is a learnable skill. My goal is to help each student express their unique voice while mastering the fundamentals. I have experience as a reading and writing tutor from an elementary school to a graduate school level. It is immensely rewarding to see my students excel in subjects they once feared, but what brings me the greatest joy is watching a student learn to love reading and to discover the deep satisfaction of putting their thoughts on paper.
I received my B.A in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College, and I was a Visiting Student in Classics and English at Oxford University. My two great passions in life are writing and education. In my life outside tutoring, I write professionally and am on the Board of Trustees of a nonprofit, early-childhood education center in Harlem, The Ricardo O’Gorman Garden.
