I first discovered tutoring as a senior in high school after creating and teaching a creative writing class at my local library. I loved working with kids so much that I decided to start tutoring in reading comprehension and English composition. I am incredibly passionate about the written word and nothing is more fulfilling to me than promoting literacy while helping students learn the skills they need for lifelong educational success.
I graduated as the valedictorian of my high school, and subsequently received a full tuition scholarship at California State University, Long Beach. I am majoring in English Literature and Creative Writing and I am also in the University Honors Program. After going through the rigorous application process for my scholarship, I have enjoyed helping high school students craft the perfect college application essays.
I love tutoring English to all ages, whether you are looking for someone to help your child learn grammar and syntax or for someone to help you edit your essay on Beowulf. I spend my spare time reading, doing pilates, playing (very carefully!) with my pet tarantula, writing short stories, and revising my first middle grade novel.
