I've been helping younger siblings, neighbors, second-classmates-twice-removed, and everyone in between for as long as I could read, which is as long as I can remember. In college, I majored in English and I majorly love the English language. I also spent a whole semester in a workshop on the personal essay, so I would take particular delight in working with you on a college essay, if that's why you are here.
So if you are a student in need of a second set of hands to bail you out of a sinking rhetorical ship -
Or perhaps a parent of a college-essay-less daughter, who is dangling over prepositional cliffs of no return -
Or perhaps a sister at your wit's end, trying to help your younger brothers with their reading comprehension -
Have no fear! I'm here and would be happy to help.
What is your teaching philosophy?
I draw inspiration from my favorite literary teachers: Miss Honey, of Roald Dahl's "Matilda," P.L. Travers' titular "Mary Poppins," and of course, Maria of "The Sound of Music." Learning can and should be cause for joy!
