I am a recent graduate of Elon University, where I earned a double English major of Professional Writing & Rhetoric and Creative Writing. My college career was defined by my work at the Elon Writing Center and as a Writing Fellow, where I was able to polish my tutoring pedagogy through experience and a full-semester preparatory course. I approach sessions with a collaborative mindset, knowing that knowledge is formed via communication, probing questions, and strategic challenges. In the Writing CenterI consulted with clients on all genres of writing, from the classic five-paragraph essay, to lab reports, to business memos. As a Fellow, I was assigned to a particular history class where I met with each student to go over any writing assignment before it was due. I am passionate about addressing high order concerns (structure and argument) before low order ones (grammar and mechanics), to best help the cognition of my clients. Of course, I can make fun exercise worksheets for areas such as punctuation and grammar rules, too.

Last summer I translated the skills I earned through this on-campus job to Vietnam where I helped Vietnamese students prepare to apply to boarding schools and colleges in the U.S. I served as a teaching assistant for English and test-prep classes, from intermediate and advanced writing to SAT classes, TOEFL tutoring, and college essay consultations. It was a joy to put my ESL training to use and to learn how to identify talent in a student and make sure that individuality is manifest on the page.

I have a passion for argumentative writing, creative writing, and vocabulary across al age groups. Getting clients excited about a well-finished product, especially the "non-writers," gives me the most satisfaction. I look forward to working with any and all clients that want a boost in their writer's morale!

In my free time, I love writing stories, watching Netflix, crafting from Pinterest, and hiking local trails with friends.
