"I live to write, and I love to teach as much as I love to learn! I'm a published author currently pursuing a master's in liberal arts at Houston Baptist University, and planning to take classes at Reformed Theological Seminary to begin pursuing my master's of religion this summer. I adore literature, and I think that anyone is capable of being passionate about a good book if given the tools to read it properly; I love history, and think that anyone can be passionate about the past if they understand its enormous impact on the present. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family -I'm the oldest of eight, so that includes a lot of time chasing ...

"I have had experience with private tutoring in several math subjects and have previously taught a chemistry class at a summer enrichment program in my hometown. My past experience has been primarily with middle school and high school aged students, but having younger siblings has equipped me with the skills to relate to students at any age. The style I use when approaching tutoring is to approach problems from several different angles. I have found that when a student understands a problem holistically they are better able to apply the knowledge to new challenges." ...

"My specialty is in essay writing and English/mechanics. I really love to help students find their voice in writing. I found that for me, as soon as I began to write about things I was passionate about on an individual level, I was able to unlock a lot of creativity. If students write about what they know, rather than what they think someone would like to hear, they often become much more authentic writers."

"I fell in love with the study of ancient languages and their respective literatures and cultures. My aim in tutoring is to instill a similar love for language in all its forms in my students. I have taught Latin at the college level, but I am eager to work more closely with students at all levels one on one, tailoring my methods to meet their individual needs, while keeping Latin both fun and rewarding, as it should be. I just moved back to the Houston area after almost ten years away in college and graduate school, and I look forward to reconnecting with my home and sharing what I've learned in my time away!." ...

"I completed my degree in Secondary Education with teaching fields in History and English. I enjoy studying pretty much anything in history, but my main focus has been American, Texas and British histories. I love both reading and writing in the English/Language Arts area, and I like to foster at least an interest, if not a passion, in my students for both. I like to write for my own pleasure, and I have years of editing experience in the classroom as a teacher and outside the classroom for individuals who need help and on book manuscripts for publication." ...
