Good writing is about conveying your thoughts and ideas in a way that can be easily understood by everyone. My job is to give students the tools they need to gain confidence in their writing and achieve academic success.

I am a creative and fun communications professional with extensive writing, editorial consulting, public relations and publishing experience in both Seattle and Washington, DC. Having been a professional journalist (ABCnews.com), I speak reporters’ language and have a strong sense for how to shape and position essays, stories and other writing assignments. While I tutor for a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Writing and History. I’ve tutored young students in reading comprehension and writing, and I’ve mentored young adults in writing and public speaking.

I am a graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications and a native of Pennsylvania. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising, with a minor in Anthropology. My wife and I live in downtown DC and enjoy all the historical and cultural offerings of the city.
