I received my Ph.D. and MA from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in Theatre History, Criticism, and Literature and my BA from New School University in Liberal Arts and Theatre. I hold two graduate minors in Gender and Women's Studies and European Union Studies. I have taught at the undergraduate level for eight years at both large research universities and small liberal arts colleges. I have a varied teaching background including everything from writing intensive courses to Public Speaking. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about aiding students with their writing; helping with research, organization, and study skills, literature and history courses. My background in theatre means I draw from creative and exciting techniques that help students retain information and advance their skills. I believe students learn best when they can relate to the material and discover its relationship to their own lives.
