I have a BA with Honors in English Literature (University of Lancaster) and a MA in English (SFSU). I specialize in helping students become better essay writers by teaching them simple and useful tricks to make their English or Composition class less intimidating. I also am passionate about Literature (my area of academic study focused on Epistolary Literature of the 18th century) and I am comfortable teaching it through the undergraduate, AP, and high school level.
I believe that learning should be fun for every student-- and if it isn't, you're not doing it right! It's my ambition to help a student become excited about what's in front of them (yes! Of Mice and Men IS exciting and so is literary theory, too!) and really begin to understand the broader implications of the text, as well as how to articulate that successfully in academic writing.
Professionally, I work in the corporate communications within San Diego's biomedical industry. I have a great job that utilizes my degrees, but tutoring is something I do because I want to continue to share my passion and knowledge with others.
I hope to hear from you soon!
