Helping others to learn and grow is something I'm passionate about. I also believe in the value of education, more than as a means to an end (career and income), but as an end in itself. Education is its own reward!

I educated students, age 5 to 17, for a total of about a year with AtoZ Tutoring. I worked for AtoZ on and off for about a year and a half. The students I taught were part of No Child Left Behind, and we practiced all school subjects so they could catch up with their cohort. I also volunteered for the Athens Area Homeless Shelter (Georgia) for 6 months, where I tutored and played games with children. I also have some experience working with children with autism.

In my teaching style and tutoring philosophy, I see myself as the coach and mentor. I'm there to help each student be the best he or she can be -- to work out that brain muscle! I'm there to challenge, motivate, and engage each student.

Subjects I tutor include elementary and middle school science; elementary through high school math (through algebra, trigonometry, and geometry); elementary through high school history and social studies; and elementary through high school English. I enjoy tutoring all subjects, but I have a particular affinity for English, history, and social studies. I enjoy reading and writing, especially essay, memoir, poetry, news, and current events.

Regarding my education, I earned my B.A. from Antioch College in 2005 in social and global studies (political science, economics, international relations, and environmental policy). I also completed all but my thesis for an M.S. in journalism from Ohio University. I plan to return to school for a Masters of Social Work from NC State in the fall of 2017.

Outside of my intellectual and professional pursuits, I enjoy weight training, health and fitness, cooking and nutrition, meditation, poetry, photography, and the great outdoors.
