Award-winning journalist offering personalized writing tutoring & college essay coaching

Reading & Comprehension, Writing All Ages

I'm an award-winning journalist & writer here to help your child with any and all of their writing needs during COVID-19 - from personalized college essay editing to one-on-one essay and creative writing tutoring. I'm a reporter for an award-winning international news outlet and previously worked at one of the largest newspapers in CA I'm also an experienced writing tutor, with a BA from Johns Hopkins University's writing seminars program and a graduate degree in journalism from UC Berkeley. My work has appeared in The Atlantic, The Guardian, Marie Claire, The Washington Post's The Lily, ELLE, & more.

I previously co-taught a high school journalism course & worked as a creative writing tutor in public schools in Baltimore, SF, & Argentina. I've also edited personal statements for medical students, law school applicants and PhD candidates. A recent client who got into all graduate programs of his choice, including UC Berkeley & UCLA, recently credited my edits with his admission. An adviser told him the admissions officers were so impressed with his personal statements they decided to take a chance on him despite his lower-than-average test scores.
