I’m a writer and journalist who moved to New York to pursue an MFA at St. Joseph’s College. My belief that education should be a creative, collaborative process has led me to tutor, and I look forward to helping students build skills that will help them become lifelong learners.

My academic specialities include writing (essays, scripts, fiction, and non-fiction), history, and literature. I have broad knowledge of the social sciences and love learning about psychology, economics, political theory, and sociology. I am an experiential learner and consider the world a classroom, and every stranger a potential teacher. This outlook has led me to take work as a day laborer, meet three U.S. presidents, open a vintage clothing store, and visit almost all 50 states.

I have coached high school students in rhetoric and speechwriting, taught art and art history to adults with intellectual disabilities, and tutored second and third graders from a failing school. I use patience and humor to engage with students, and stoke their natural curiosity by relating academic subjects to their lived experiences.
