I love to learn and I love to help others in their learning process. I teach English Composition at a local college and I have tutored all different levels in English, Spanish, Italian, French, Writing, Sociology, Philosophy, and more. My method of teaching is to first find out what the student knows, what he or she hopes to learn, and about any passions or concerns the student has. Second, I present a plan of how I think we should go about mastering the needed knowledge, get feedback, and begin to see what teaching tools have optimal resonance. Third, I follow the plan while continually checking for acquisition and if there are any new areas that need to be addressed. I am creative, intuitive, patient, and a really great listener. As such, I use these traits as often as possible in order to create an atmosphere of optimal growth.

I have two Masters degrees--one in English Textual Studies and one in Philosophy. I am also getting a PhD in Philosophy. I have lived in several different states in the US (PA, FL, MD, CO, CT, and IL), and I have lived in other countries (Peru, Spain, Italy, and Mexico) and visited many more.

I have two big dogs (an Old English Mastiff and a Newfoundland) and two striped cats. I love to do yoga and tai chi. I just love meeting new people and learning more about all there is to know.
