I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis where I earned a B.A. in English Literature and a B.F.A. in Digital Imaging and Photography. My most rewarding tutoring experience to date was tutoring Writing and English Literature through a high school writing center. I loved seeing my student's command of their material become increasingly sophisticated throughout the course of their academic year by focusing on their overall comprehension as well as the mechanics of their writing. Additionally, I have had great success aiding students in writing their personal statements for both undergraduate and graduate admissions. Across the board, my teaching philosophy has been to prompt my students through discussion, using questions as much as concrete examples to promote understanding.
Currently I work as the managing editor for the internationally acclaimed literary magazine Boulevard, where I spend a good chunk of my time selecting short fiction, essays and poetry for our pages. Then proofreading those same works for publication! In my non-reading/writing time, you can find me training for a 5k trail race or trying a new recipe, often borderline too ambitious.
