I am originally from Houston, and a diehard Texans fan. I completed my undergraduate work at Pepperdine University in English, with my emphasis in writing and rhetoric and a concentration in film theory and Feminist rhetoric. While at Pepperdine, I also studied music, vocal emphasis, and had the opportunity to spend time in Germany working with a small opera company in Heidelberg. I was also a member and eventual president of the university’s improv troupe and had multiple internships in the publishing arena. It was during my time at Pepperdine that I discovered my love for tutoring!

I first began as a writing tutor in the library’s writing center and eventually became a head tutor. At Pepperdine I tutored both graduate and undergraduate students in all stages of their writing process (e.g. idea development, organization, composition, etc). Outside of the writing center, I tutored elementary age students in reading, working mostly with those children that had been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD--as an adult with ADD, I found that one-on-one engagement with these students was most effective.

While pursuing my graduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston, I maintained my busy tutoring endeavors, but worked exclusively with undergraduate freshman and sophomores. My work with tutoring guided me to the classroom, and I began teaching at the university level during my second year of graduate school. It was during this time I added literature to my repertoire of tutoring, and have found that a composition approach to literary tutoring is both fun and effective. I just finished my graduate work in May, moved to Virginia Beach, and I’m excited to get back to my passion!
