MFA graduate in Brooklyn, NY gives English and Creative Writing lessons to high school and college students

About the lesson

I'm an MFA graduate of New York University with a degree in Creative Writing/Fiction. I help high school and college students with literature, grammar, and creative writing. I use literature as a jumping-off point to connect the student to her/himself and to the broader culture. I also use practice worksheets (grammar) and creative brainstorming/writing exercises (creative writing).
