As a graduate of Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, I learned to apply my love of English through reading, writing and editing. Now I enjoy helping students learn English from the fundamentals of spelling, grammar and sentence structure to more complex topics such as creative writing, using visualization and brainstorming techniques. Tutoring students using a one-size-fits-all approach rarely works, since each student has a unique and different learning style. To complement these styles, I assist a student’s comprehension of a subject using visual, auditory and hands-on methods. I believe once a student can connect and relate to the subject material, they can achieve their academic goals.
My background involves test scoring for students in grades K-12 in English, math, and science for an educational assessment company. Also, I’ve worked as a Program Assistant in student services for the Admissions and Records department of a large, diverse public university.
In addition to working in education, I’ve worked in food service. I also have an Associates of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts from the Seattle Culinary Academy. I particularly enjoy cooking and baking foods of different cultures featuring highly aromatic, sweet and savory dishes. When I’m not cooking or baking, I like to ride my bicycle, watch romantic movies and listen to a variety of music.
