I am currently working on my Master's degree in English literature at the University of Colorado in Boulder. I received my BA from Indiana University with majors in English literature and French. I have experience teaching and grading literature courses at the undergraduate level. I tutor English topics including reading and writing as well as SAT and GRE test preparation for verbal and analytic writing. I am passionate about teaching English because I feel it helps develop our academic and personal though processes. Work in English can teach valuable skills for effective communication and critical thinking; developing these skills can make individuals into respected conversationalists and successful problem solvers in the personal and business world. Every person learns differently, so when I teach, I work to suit my teaching to a student's learning style while I also make sure to explain not just what a response should be, but also how to come up with responses to similar problems in the future and why the response is the most appropriate. When I'm not educating myself or others, I enjoy painting and hiking.
