Founder of Refined Writing
I truly love nurturing each student’s inherent capabilities, especially helping them embrace the talents and creativity that they might not have known existed. Witnessing the growth and academic achievement of my students is a rewarding and very positive experience!
Each student/project is unique, which means that there is no one formula to my work. I excel at determining your specific needs, then focusing on accomplishing your goals with skilled and thoughtful expertise. Collaboration and active learning are focal points to my job as writing tutor, test prep instructor, and editor.
I have a passion for words and enjoy teaching writing, grammar, and reading. I always emphasize correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as those are the foundations of successful essays and papers.
I am also skilled at crafting college application essays, and I enjoy tutoring high school students as they navigate through the college admissions process.
