I graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Science in English Education and a minor in Creative Writing. I successfully taught Honors English, Journalism and Introduction to Drama in Tampa, Florida for 12 years and worked part-time as a tutor and at the Tampa Tribune in the online features department. Upon moving to Georgia I have worked at several publications and have published freelance articles in regional and national publications, and I currently work as writer and editor at a research firm. As an instructor, I believe that the key to helping a student learn is to talk to them about what they already know and what they are most interested in and to connect the material to be learned to that strong base. My students are always willing to work with me because they know I will help them every step of the way. I am patient and willing to explain every aspect of the subject as many times and in as many ways as it takes for the material to click with my student, because I believe that education is the key to a great life. From discussing movie motifs with friends at a dinner party to using your 11th grade statistics to figure out your fantasy football strategy, the facts, figures, concepts and skills you learn over the course of your education serve as a Kon-Tiki to sail you through the rest of your life. I am committed to making sure my students are not missing a single plank.
