I am a graduate of the University of Miami, where I received my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I also earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of California Irvine. In my eight years of tutoring and teaching, I have worked with teens and adults across the United States, as well as two years teaching young children in Japan. My tutoring specialty is in Verbal, Writing, and Critical Reading for the GRE, SAT, and ACT, but I have an overall passion for English language and literature. I believe that the best teaching is usually calm and fun, which springs from a personal relationship based on care and trust for one another. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy writing, cooking (especially vegetarian and gluten-free/allergen-free cuisines), running, and traveling to new cities.
