We are what we know. Growing up, my mother was an English and grammar teacher. I'd sit with her at the kitchen table while she graded - her red pen a trusty sword shining in the midst of a stack of papers a mile high. She taught me her tricks and tips, her shortcuts and symbols, and as writing became a great passion of mine, I began to realize that tutoring was too.
Throughout high school and during my years as a communication major at Villanova University, I was always that girl with three of my friends' papers wedged into my purse. I was the one in the coffee shop scanning everything from Georgetown essays to Wilde vs. Whitman comparisons to thesis statements on speech pathology.
I am a published author, the winner of the National American Voices award at Carnegie Hall for my play "Lumos," and a judge of the National Scholastic Writing Awards.
I love assisting in creating that final product - the freshly printed, mistake-free masterpiece that is black words on a white page. After nearly five years of tutoring writers and editing papers, I decided it was time to go viral and edit for the masses.
The minute Peter Parker donned his red spandex, he became Spiderman. I may not have "spidey senses" or even spandex, but I do have a red pen. And as Red Pen Wench, I will fight off every grammar mistake, battle every boring word choice and conquer the evil that is anything less than a professional piece of prose.

Level is an organization at Villanova University for which I spent a year volunteering as a tutor. I worked with college students with disabilities, namely cerebral palsy, and assisted them with typing essays, Spanish homework, managing/sending e-mails, etc. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life because not only did I see disabled students from a brand new perspective, but I was gifted with life-long friends in the process.
