Hi! I'm Nishy. If you're looking for someone with a multi-dimensional writing background who obsesses about crafting the perfect sentence, then look no further. I have all the degrees and credentials to prove that I am knowledgeable and extensively trained in writing. I graduated from UCI with a degree in Psychology and got my Master in Business Administration in 2015. I started tutoring kids and peers back in high school (2001-2004) and at UCI while I was earning my degree at UCI (2005-2008). Then, I moved onto training professionals in all types of writing, technical, research, creative, etc. I write sketches for Second City Hollywood and UCB Theater, and I'm also a stand-up comedian. I write stories, jokes, podcasts, and perform. That just means I'm fun to work with and easy to get along with.
Watching someone write is like watching a masterpiece being painted, stroke by stroke. I love working with people of all ages because I get insight into their perspective. Writing is an escape from the ordinary and it's also a connection to the ordinary in a unique way. We all grow from it, and I'd be happy to be part of your growth process.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I'll spend some time getting to know the student by asking questions about what they enjoy doing, where they find the most joy. I like to get to know them so I can better cater to them. Then, we'll review some of their current work. Finally, we will establish intermittent goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been a peer and child tutor since high school and have taught all different levels, ages, and backgrounds. During my Masters in Business Administration, I wrote dozens of papers every week: research, company analysis, creative writing, marketing, advertising, strategy. And as a Second City Conservatory graduate, I have written countless sketches and stand up sets to perform for others and myself.
