I earned an MFA in English & Writing at Brown University, where I was also employed as an English instructor. I have been a tutor for over ten years. More than anything, I love to help students--of all ages--with their writing. Why? Because writing is stressful (right?). When someone finishes a paper--or a paragraph--that he or she thought was insurmountable, the peace that comes over that person is worth a million bucks. I want to make your life easier, and I want to make you more confident in your abilities. My specialty is any form of tutoring related to language arts and literature, including theory. I work with students in grades K-12, as well as with undergraduates and graduate students. I can help you with papers in any subject, as well as with resumes or scholarship application essays. My own writing has been published in the Minneapolis weekly City Pages and in the UtneReader. This past fall I won the prestigious Sloan Foundation Screenwriting Fellowship. In San Francisco I produced a play in collaboration with 826 Valencia, run by author Dave Eggers. But enough about me. I look forward to meeting you!
