A lifelong Chicago area resident, I hold a bachelors degree in English, a masters in English Education, and a second masters degree in school and community mental health counseling, all earned at St. Xavier University. I am a licensed teacher of grades six through twelve and have experience teaching at both the middle and high school levels. I have also previously worked as an online tutor for college students and have experience with a wide range of ability levels.

There are a lot of important elements to a tutoring relationship, but I believe that the relationship itself can be vital. I hope my optimism and enthusiasm will rub off on my students, who may feel very discouraged and hopeless when we begin working together. I share with them how I have struggled also--not everything came easily to me. That shaped my decision to become a school counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

In my spare time I enjoy reading, travel, spending time with family and friends, and playing with my dog, Buddy. I also enjoy traveling, listening to music, and watching old movies.
