I earned my B.A. in English from Miami University (Ohio) in 2007 and my M.A. in English from Clemson University in 2009. I am currently a PhD candidate in English at the University of Maryland, where I teach a variety of college level courses, including composition and literature courses. I am very invested in working one-on-one with students on critical writing and critical reading skills. Both sets of skills involve analytical thinking, but they also involve creative thinking. It is the interplay between the analytical and the creative that I find most enjoyable about tutoring and teaching. In my free time, I enjoy playing guitar, reading poetry, and being outdoors.
