University Instructor Offering Lessons in Writing, Reading, Literature, English, Spanish, and Film

Methodology

I graduated from Brown University with an honorary Bachelor's degree. I received a Masters in Comparative Literature from Rutgers University, where I also taught literature and film, and a Masters in Literature from the University of Buenos Aires. I am a published writer and have over five years of experience editing and copywriting for publications and websites.

Background

I have been giving classes and tutoring students for the past ten years. Prior to that, while in high school, I also tutored students. I've taught classrooms of at most twenty students and have also tutored students on an individual or small group basis. Students have always reached their goal of receiving good or excellent marks on their papers or tests. When teaching languages, students have expressed success while traveling or at work, when having to utilize the new language.
