I have extensive experience helping students develop effective writing and library research skills, including implementation of APA Style. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective. The retrospective study centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. My writing and research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

With a light touch and kind, but constructive feedback, students can expect me to help guide them in tightening up their essays for clarity, efficiency, and rubric requirements. I am able to assist with academic as well as elementary school essays. I will ensure that your thoughts are organized, that your vocabulary is diverse, that your transitions are seamless, and that you capture and maintain your reader's interest from beginning to end. Bonus: I may make you laugh, chuckle, or at least smile. I'm good at that.

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience. That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all. Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used in order to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc. Taking at look at and examining your writing process together will allow us to customize the tutoring session for your needs specifically. Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

The fine art of writing and essay is a pleasure once it is understood. As a published writer with books on Amazon, Barns and Noble and many other fine retailers, I can help to improve your skills. My degree work in the Professional Writing program was received at the University of Southern California. I am fluent in several languages, which adds to the cultural perception of diverse backgrounds. Early studies during my high school years were spent in earning university credits at the University of Rochester in the Russian Literature department and my work for different publication such as the Gannet papers produced a following of readership. Articles and my music criticism are archived on line. If in person, we usually meet at Panera or Starbucks during the day. Working online is more flexible. Whatever your challenge or goal, I am happy to help you achieve it in a relaxed, and positive lesson. I look forward to working with you!

I got my Masters degree in writing from University of New Hampshire. When I was a grad student, I had helped ESL students with their papers and writing assignments. 2021-2022, I taught high school students (grade 10 and 11) Comprehensive Reading and Writing 101 at St. Mary's Medford in Zhengzhou. If you are a student who struggles to write, or needs help with writing essays or papers, I am here to help. With my knowledge and teaching experience, I will help you cultivate your writing skills and shape your own style of writing. The writing process will be easier for you! Some highlights: - A college student's paper: BEFORE B-; AFTER A- - A high school student's TOEFL Writing: BEFORE 16; AFTER 22 A comment from a student: "I used to have troubles getting started in writing and establishing the central idea. The writing process seems so much easier for me. Having the clear idea about what to achieve and how to reach my audience, I always get my writing work done efficiently."
