Before founding my own tutoring business, I was a classroom English teacher for twenty years. I believe in all of my students, and I believe reading and writing skills permeate all subject matters.

My writing has been featured in a variety of publications, including Education Post, Mantra Magazine, Edutopia, and Moms Don't Have Time To Write.   

My novel-in-progress is titled "Lucy's Lane."  The story is middle-grade realistic fiction. I'm currently enrolled in Grub Street fiction workshops and serve as a teacher at New Haven Reads. I work with students of all ages both online and in-person. In-person tutoring takes place in New Haven and Fairfield counties.
