I am able to tutor for GRE preparation, instruct in grammar and usage in general, and guide students towards success in essay-writing. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Science from Colorado College in 2004, a Master of Arts Degree in Poetics from The New College of California in 2008, and am currently in progress towards a Master's in Literary Studies at Georgia State University. I have served as a Professor of English at Berkeley College, in New Jersey, where I taught classes in Composition and Response to Literature. I have also served as an Education Intern with the National Park Service's Education program at Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco, where I led education programs for third-grade and sixth-grade students. I currently serve as a Substitute Teacher at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta. In my free time I enjoy writing poetry, running, hiking, and spending time with friends.
I approach teaching through a student-centered philosophy--I listen to students' perspectives and help to guide them (using their starting point) toward successful strategies. I aim to make students aware of organizational processes and problem-solving strategies which they use currently, and suggest further strategies to effective writing and problem solving. A student that I tutor will gain not only an answer to the problem of the moment, but an awareness of processes and strategies which will help them to be successful in the future.
