Personal Statement

I am honored to work as both a private tutor at Embrace, and as a college professor at Montclair University and Kean University. As a tutor, I assist elementary school students through college students and adults. As a professor, I teach freshman-level writing, introduction to literature, plus business writing and technical writing. Helping students transition from high school to college reading and writing is one of my specialties, along with test preparation, homework help, and more. Additionally, my former career as a paralegal brings me an extra level of professionalism and organization.
