I am an experienced writer and teacher with a degree in Political Science from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois and a Master's degree in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education in New York, New York. My essays and poetry have appeared in publications such as GlobalPost, Nashville Review, North American Review, and more. I have taught and tutored students for over five years, with four years of experience in the classroom.

In particular, I have a passion for helping people with essays and test taking skills. I specialize in coaching students through the personal essay writing process from start to finish, whether for college admission or other applications. I am patient, resourceful, and insightful, and have a broad knowledge base from science to political science; from fine literature to fine arts.

I also know my way around standardized tests. I scored a 34 on the ACT, and in the 98th and 96th percentile of the GRE's analytical writing and verbal reasoning sections, respectively.

Outside of academics, I also love to paint, practice yoga, and travel. I've spent time in many other countries, like France, Turkey, and Iraq, and have studied French, Arabic, and Persian. I hope you find my skills and experience a good match for what you're seeking! I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!
