"...A fully online college, the unique struggles faced in the electronic classroom have served in giving me great understanding of instructor expectations and how to take your education into your own hands; seeking tutoring services is doing just that, taking your education into your own hands! I am passionate about all things literature and writing. Words are one's most valuable tool, and being able to help others articulate their words onto paper and strengthen their comprehensive skills is the most rewarding task in my mind. I am a huge advocate for education and believe that everyone has the ability to improve upon their current abilities..."

"As a certified Secondary English Language Arts teacher, I have found that a student thrives best when offered the help and support of their teachers and peers. Putting students at the center of instruction guarantees students' academic success. I graduated from St. Edward's University with one mantra that has remained true throughout all of my years working with middle and high school students in Austin, TX, and that is "the unexamined life is not worth living." It is crucial for all students to develop those critical thinking tools that will ensure their success not only in school but in their lives..."

"...Yeats This philosophy has always guided my approach to teaching. I believe that getting a student from A to B is certainly critical, but what is even more essential is the 'aha' moment when a difficult problem clicks, a love for writing comes about, a passion is ignited, and/or inspiration is born. This is what makes a student a lifelong learner who doesn't shy away from a challenge or the unknown..."
