For the last twelve years, I have taught English composition and literature for the University of Wisconsin. While I love the classroom, I have come to see that one-on-one instruction is the most effective and rewarding for both teachers and students. Now that I am in Chicago, I am eager to provide that kind of individualized instruction to help students prepare for and succeed in all of their scholastic endeavors.

One of the reasons I majored in English was that every subject is of interest to me, and language is the primary tool with which we share knowledge and ideas about all of them. While my primary specialty is tutoring in writing and reading, I am also available for tutoring in mathematics, history, the social sciences, and ACT/SAT preparation.

I have a Master of Arts in English from Ohio University. I received my bachelor's from Ohio State and also attended Kenyon College. My master's thesis compared the works of Geoffrey Chaucer to those of James Joyce, while my undergraduate focus was in American Literature of the twentieth century. As you might guess I am an avid reader. I am on a trivia team that has won several contests. I also play guitar and chess, the latter of which I teach children to play in an after-school program.

More than anything, I love to share information and ideas, find new ways to approach problems, and seek to understand the different ways people think about the world. My students describe me as patient, kind, and knowledgeable. I believe that dialogue is fundamental to learning, so I will be asking a lot of questions as well as answering those that you have.
