Bowdoin literature graduate offering essay writing and English tutoring in Chicago for all ages, including AP, SAT, ACT tutoring

Methodology

My teaching methodology is dependent on the needs of the student - be it an essay on Jane Eyre or an upcoming SAT - but I strive to give my students specific, easy-to-remember rules that help motivate them to write, eliminate the fear of writing, and unlock their creative potential in the essay format.

Background

I have been tutoring in English classes since high school, and received a degree in English Literature with honors from Bowdoin College. I received perfect scores in Reading and Writing on the SAT, and the highest possible scores on the English Literature and English Language AP exams.
