Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I love teaching English, writing, and reading because I loved learning English, writing, and reading! I have always enjoyed reading and writing, and I had some wonderful teachers when I was in school. They demystified a lot of the process, teaching me concrete ways to use the rules and structure of the language to nourish and filter creativity, not block it. My goal is always to allow my understanding of language, combined with my natural, contagious enthusiasm for it, make the work feel more like fun!

Teaching since:

I graduated with honors from New York University, earning my BFA in theatre. I use my degree to pursue my career as an actress/singer, and I use my love of academics to tutor! In fact, I think my acting training gives me a bit of an advantage as a tutor. I love getting inside my students’ heads, so to speak. Everyone has different struggles and everyone learns differently, and I think I bring a unique perspective and skill level when it comes to understanding and adapting to the needs of each student.
