A good teacher can make an enormous impact on the life of a student. I have seen this firsthand throughout my life. As a student, I learned how to read and write critically because I had teachers who cared, and who invested themselves in my education. Because of these teachers, I have dedicated myself to the education of others. As a tutor, there is nothing more gratifying than having a student report back that a paper got an A, or that a much-feared test was actually a breeze.
My goal as your tutor is to remove the fear and anxiety that may surround a subject, and to place there instead something positive--the love of a book, an appreciation for a well-written paragraph, and the confidence to attack any test or assignment with assurance.
I hold my Master's Degree in English Curriculum and Instruction for grades 5-12, and I am well-versed in different teaching methods to ensure that a student who works with me has every chance of success. I think that students learn best when they are interested in a topic; my job as a tutor is to stimulate that interest in any way possible. I will motivate and inspire you to be the best student you can be!

I love the written word! l spend the majority of my free time reading and writing. Some of my favorite authors are Tobias Wolff, Lorrie Moore, and Dorothy Allison. I have published several short stories. I also love to bake cookies and cook healthy vegetarian dinners.
