I am a graduate of Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA. My graduate work focused on Creative Writing with a travel and research component, which I completed in Costa Rica and Ecuador. My undergraduate Bachelor of Arts focused on both Creative Writing and Fine Arts. I have taught undergraduate level English, English as a Second Language (ESL) and Visual Arts courses since 2007. I have tutored middle school, high school, and college students in essay writing, ESL, research writing, poetry, travel writing, and college preparatory work. I love teaching. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to reach students on an individual basis, and focus on their learning styles and educational needs. I look for ways to interact with each student and impart my love for writing to them. Whether the student is struggling to understand a specific essay style or simply needs help finding a way to stay organized and successful in school, I am confident I can help them. Outside of tutoring, I teach Research Writing, Composition, and Grammar at the collegiate level. I enjoy ice skating, hiking, reading, traveling, watching Science Fiction television and walking my dog in my free time.
