I am a 2013 University of Pennsylvania graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in English. I love to write, and spent the majority of my college career immersing myself in journalism. I have interned with such publications as USA Today and The Philadelphia Inquirer, and have served as both writer and editor for two of my school's publications. Meanwhile, I am often the de facto editor for my family. Editing has taught me that the best way to foster good writing--and by extension, learning--is through positive encouragement and good attention to detail. Positive encouragement is important because I believe anyone can write well if they're confident and know they'll find support if they occasionally fail. Meanwhile, attention to detail is crucial because, oftentimes, poor writing is due to a few bad habits. As a tutor, it's my job to notice these kinds of patterns and help my students overcome them.

I also studied Spanish for six years, and received a proficiency certification from my school. When I'm not writing, dancing, or being an amateur foodie, I enjoy reading Spanish magazine articles.
