I’m a private tutor specializing in reading and writing in English for a variety of contexts, both academic and professional. I have a PhD in English from Yale University, and I work primarily with students to enhance their scholastic performance, whether it be to better their reading and writing abilities in the classroom; to increase their verbal score on the SAT/ACT/GRE; to better their vocabularies and taining them how to read and write about what they read; and to revise and polish their admissions essays to the colleges/univerisities they want to attend or dream about attending.

I like to begin by assessing what specifically my client needs are before either meeting with them personally or on the phone. After addressing these needs, I go about tailor-making their lesson plans, concentrating on what they have trouble with and then going through these exercises over the course of several sessions. I prefer to have them submit their writing to me, if it’s a college admissions essay or a school assignment, and I meticulously go through each sentence to polish their grammar and syntax and to give their writing voice a presence that makes them stand out and captivate their readers.
I have a PhD in English from Yale University in 2017, as well as a MA and MPhil from Yale in English. I received my undergraduate degree, a BA in English, from UNC Chapel Hill in 2010. I taught several courses in Shakespeare, the 20th century American Novel, and Reading and Writing the Law at Yale. I currently work as a freelance tutor for several companies in the Raleigh area, including CaryTutors and College Nannies and Tutors.
Depending on the client, his or her location, and the extent to which he or she requires a tutoring session, I charge roughly $25 an hour. For essay evaluation and revision, I charge $20 an hour. For standardized test preparation, I charge $25 an hour. If the client wishes to meet with me, I add $10 to my rate.
As a PhD candidate at Yale, I was required to lead sections of various courses.
