About Me

I have nine years’ experience as an English teacher in private high schools (The Brearley School, The Dalton School, and Campbell Hall); I have also taught at the college level, at the University of Oxford (where I earned my doctorate in English) and at UCLA. At Campbell Hall, I was one of four handpicked English teachers who worked with rising seniors on every aspect of writing for their college applications at the school’s summer College Boot Camp. In addition to my classroom teaching and college-application coaching experience, I have worked as a tutor specializing in critical reading, writing, and thinking skills with middle school, high school, and college students in New York City and Los Angeles. Beyond teaching, I have worked as a professional editor and writer, including experience at a national daily newspaper in London.
