I am a graduate of Emerson College where I received my B.S. in Mass Communications, and earned my M.S. from Pace University where I studied publishing. Everyone has a story to tell and some people feel they cannot express it in words. However, with patience, organization, and practice, they can become better at doing so. I have worked at a newspaper and also do medical editing. I have helped young and adult students become better writers and readers. As a result, they have increased confidence. My desire is to see students progress, not only academically, but be strengthened with skills that will help them in the future. Having met children from around the world through humanitarian work, what is consistent is that we all have a dream and a unique story. If you need help, I'd like to help you tell yours. I have had mentors help me in my schooling and career and likewise want to offer the same. On a personal note, my hobbies always grow. I love to travel, do crafty things, study naturopathy, play guitar, sing, I'm a foodie, and also make cosmetics like a scientist. I'm willing to try new things, and enjoy creation outdoors.

What is your teaching philosophy?
We are all on a journey and sometimes need help from those who have traveled further. I am patient in helping students learn in a way that enables them to assimilate knowledge and cultivate life skills that remain with them.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First, I'd like to get to know a bit about the student as a person such as goals, aspirations, and motivations. Then, I would evaluate where the student is academically and where help is needed. Lastly, I'd learn about the student's preferred learning style.
