I have always appreciated the written word - whether writing a research paper, diagramming a sentence, journaling, reading a teen novella, or analyzing Shakespeare. There is much to be learned and offered from it. Initial enjoyment turned into serious study, and I earned my Bachelor and Master degrees and became a secondary English teacher.
I have had much experience in the educational arena and have worked with varying age groups, skill levels, and course work. I have instructed from the middle school level to the collegiate level. Aside from my formal teaching and tutoring, I have also had the opportunity to be a mother and teach my own children.
I have a passion for both literature and writing and enjoy sharing that with others. I desire to help others enhance their learning abilities and educational experience.
