I have always loved learning. From the time that I was a child, I was planning out my education. I love open-discussion classes in which the students generate the questions, prompting critical thought and analysis of the subject and most importantly, of their own ideas. I am a graduate of William Woods University where I earned a BA in English and a BS in Equine Science. I am also a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland, where I earned a master's degree in English Literature which focused on the effects of literature on the societies of the Enlightenment, Romantic, and Victorian periods, primarily in England and Scotland. My time abroad was incredible and it opened my eyes to the world and to the importance of education as a whole. I learned that education is the start of everything. The better educated we, as a people, are the better we will understand the world. It is of paramount importance to foster the natural curiosity of youth and to channel it toward education. Students need to be encouraged to love education so that they can expand their own and so that they can involve themselves in the betterment of their own situations. Education encourages proactivity, it helps people set and achieve goals, and it keeps our society functioning and improving. By ensuring that our students have the best foundations in education that we can provide, we are insuring our futures. More informed students who are better are able to think critically and for themselves means that we will have generations of people who can develop new and better ideas for the next generation. If we continue to improve education, we will continue to improve the world. It is with this in mind that I have come into tutoring. Every student matters and every student makes a difference.
