I’m a proud graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Rhetoric, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I was awarded a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. Over my eight years of teaching, I have worked with students in writing essays, understanding material assigned to them and material that they use in writing argument and research papers. As a tutor, I can help you with beginning your essays, developing them, and suggesting ways to make them better. Because my interests are diverse, I can help you move ahead with assignments in many subject areas, especially ones involving research and writing. I believe that one-on-one contact with students is important, recognizing each as a unique human being, drawing out of them interests that connect with their assignments. I work with students from a wide range of ages, all of them trying to learn how to communicate in writing and also students who are taking public speaking classes. In addition to an intense love of reading good writing, I do some writing of my own, mostly fiction and personal essays. Movies are a strong interest, too. I love seeing new places, but getting to know places right in my own neighborhood is fascinating, and I often break out my camera and take pictures of people, places and things that I want to preserve and share with others.
