I bring two years experience as a tutor in New Jersey and New York. In addition, I worked as a journalist for three years in Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. I believe my experiences make me an excellent listener and a proficient editor.

I enjoy working with students on English, Spanish, and Writing. I have a thoughtful and patient approach.

I grew up in a trilingual household and am pursuing a graduate degree in Creative Writing. I studied Comparative Literature in college. I look forward to working with students and helping them fulfill their academic goals.
