It was always my dream to be a teacher, and I am excited every day to help students learn and grow. I am an NCATE and Massachusetts certified English and ESL teacher for secondary-aged students (Grades 5-12) and adults, having received a BA in English Education and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Delaware. I taught English Language Arts in public schools, and my classes included many students with special needs and ESL backgrounds. Currently, I also work as an online English tutor, helping students in over 100 countries worldwide learn English.

Tutoring can focus on any subjects related to English Language Arts, ESL, Organization/Study Skills, and Test Preparation (SAT, ACT, MCAS, PARCC, MTEL, etc.). I have a personal love of reading and writing, and I enjoy helping students to build their own passion for language. Organization and study skills are also an area of strength for me, especially after working for some time with middle school students who were learning to become more independent in their academics. In my spare time, I love to dance, travel, bake, and relax with my adorable cats. Most importantly, I believe you will find me to be a reliable, dedicated, and creative professional. I look forward to working with you and improving your academic skills!
