I am a vibrantly enthusiastic educator with fifteen years of teaching experience with students between 5th and 12th grades. As a certified English teacher who has chosen to maintain my career as an educator, I now offer tutoring across all subjects, writing instruction, test prep, and editing (in person and remotely) to families
on the Main Line from my home in Devon.
I have a lifelong commitment to education. I hold a Master's of English Literature from Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School via Oxford University (UK) and an undergraduate
degree in English Literature Magna Cum Laude from Barnard College/Columbia University.
My educational experiences range across all manner of settings: from day schools to boarding schools, I have confidently led classrooms in public, private, single-sex, and co-ed schools in five states and two coasts. I have worked in classrooms with student
bodies from as small as 6 to as large as 25. One clear universal need all students share—no matter their gifts or challenges: students thrive in the presence of a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who is attuned to their specific
learning needs and who can motivate them while making learning entertaining.
Regionally, I opened and ran my third Writing Center at a new school in our midst specifically designed for gifted learners: The Grayson School (please
check it out! www.TheGraysonSchool.org). For almost five years I helped found and launch Grayson (Pre-K through912h grades). Grayson is the only school
in the state of Pennsylvania built to instruct gifted children. During its inaugural year as the Chair of the Language Arts Department I spearheaded a writing intensive elective and then established Grayson's Writing Center. Additionally, I also served
on Grayson's Executive Board and on the Upper School Task Force.
