I have worked closely tutoring students and editing their work on an assignment by assignment basis, or consistently over the course of semesters. Further, I have helped high school graduates and transfer students through application and acceptance to such schools as NYU, Bard College, and the New School. As a transfer student from Laguardia Community College, I worked my way to a BFA at NYU, where I earned a Magna Cum Laude degree with Honors in English Literature. Upon graduation, I went on to pursue an MFA in English at Middlebury College, where I was a recipient of the Whittington Family Grant. Having grown up in New York City, I now live in Astoria with my family. I am currently accepting students both remotely and in-person.
