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 (sometimes more). 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.
Recently, I installed and am currently running my third Writing Center at a new school in
our midst specifically designed for gifted learners: The Grayson School (please check us out! www.TheGraysonSchool.org). Over the past three+ years establishing my tutoring practice I
have been busy developing and successfully launching Grayson (K-6th grades, soon to include 7th and 8th 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 established Grayson's Writing Center. Additionally, I also serve on Grayson's Executive Board as I
am dedicated to meeting the needs of gifted learners.
