I graduated 2011 from the University of Michigan, with a Bachelor's of Arts in English. I'm particularly focused on the English language, on reading and comprehension, and on literature. I also have experience with ESL and ELL students. I enjoy English because it helps to illustrate ideas and tell stories, and can vicariously include others in an experience or event or make them see things from a perspective they might not otherwise have considered. I have experience in tutoring all aspects of the writing process, from the beginning, such as brainstorming ideas, to later revisions of a finished product. I'm also quite familiar with reading comprehension and knowledge acquisition, and have a strong background in literature in English as well as literary devices and storytelling tropes. My tutoring style is didactic but engaging, helping to inform students of any issues they might face and providing solutions that may help them in overcoming such difficulties. I also am interested in English culture, language, and history.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy embraces a student's perspective and allows their personal ideals or concepts to shine through clearly, and provides stronger and more detailed awareness through education and improved intellectual attitudes.
