I graduated from Vassar College with top honors, and hold a degree in Political Science and a minor in Educational Studies. As a college student, I had the opportunity to work with both my peers and with high school students on their writing assignments across academic disciplines. I've got lots of experience assisting folks with their writing at every phase of the process. Whether you need help brainstorming a good thesis, refining the main arguments of an essay, or just need a critical eye to go over a rough draft, it would be my pleasure to help out. I'm passionate about good writing, and I love helping individual students develop their voice and craft a compelling final draft. I'm also great at consulting on strategies to create clear and effective pieces of writing in a short period of time, skills necessary to rock the writing portions of both the SATs and the GRE.
As a student of education, I know that people have a wide variety of learning styles. As an instructor, I pay close attention to a student's strengths and work to build confidence and skills from there. In my downtime, I enjoy swimming laps, reading good fiction, and exploring the many natural and culinary wonders of the Bay Area.
