I am a graduate of Ithaca College located in upstate New York. There, I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and my Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in English. With these degrees, I am certified to teach English grades 7-12 and have taught 7th and 8th grade Language Arts for the past five years. My favorite areas to teach and tutor are English, Literature, History and especially Writing. I love reading young adult fiction and relating it to my own life and experiences. I truly enjoy working one-on-one with students and mapping out an individualized success plan for each student. By doing this, we can track progress and celebrate successes. I also like to get to know my students and establish professional relationships, as I feel this helps me understand a student's individual needs. In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking, snowboarding, playing tennis, and watching sports, mostly football. I am new to the San Diego Area and am enjoying getting to know the West Coast culture, especially learning to surf!
