I have always loved helping others understand something, be it in an academic setting, the workplace, or even among friends. My areas of interest include English literature, writing, grammar, psychology, and study skills. I believe that anything can be taught and understood by anyone if it is given the right context.
I am originally from Mississippi and have lived in Virginia and the UK before settling down in Colorado. I have a bachelor’s degree from Hollins University with a double major in English and psychology. My concentration in English was writing, both creative and analytical, but I also have a great interest in pretty much all literature. With psychology my concentration was in personality/social, as well as evolutionary psychology. While taking psychology classes I also developed a special interest in theories of learning and behaviorism. I believe that the combination of English and psychology gives me a unique perspective on learning and teaching. It has helped me realize that all subjects are not as different as they may seem and that connecting unfamiliar topics with better understood materials can be an important tool in the learning process.
Outside of academia my interests include movies, tv, reading, writing, cooking, anime, and video games. I also enjoy the outdoors and trying new hobbies.
I am excited to meet and help students in the Aurora/Denver area!
