I hold a Bachelor's in English from Troy University, as well as a Master's, also in English, from Case Western Reserve University. I'm currently a second-year PhD candidate (CWRU, English), and also freelance edit and write. At Case, I've had extensive experience as a teacher across the English curriculum, and have tutored in the Writing Resource Center over the past four years. I've worked with undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from almost every department on campus. I can help students revise a paper no matter the discipline, but am most at home tutoring literature, essay writing, creative writing, test prep, and study skills. My favorite subject to tutor is creative writing, as I am a fiction author myself. I enjoy nurturing students' creativity while urging them to push beyond their writing style comfort zone. My primary goals as a tutor are to help students learn the skills they need to succeed in their classes, while also inspiring genuine passion for and knowledge of the subject matter that they will carry with them throughout their academic careers and personal lives. In my spare time, I enjoy discovering new books, music, and films to devour, writing fiction, cycling, and hiking.
