I'm a part-time college professor with experience tutoring multiple subjects at the college level, including English, writing, and media studies. But I don't just tutor the subject. My goal is to help you develop independent critical reading, writing, and thinking skills that will serve you in the future.
When my nose isn't in a book or glued to a movie screen, I'm probably cooking, knitting, or hiking with my dogs. I also volunteer with a local youth program.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
The fact that you want to work with a tutor tells me that you've already got some motivation! But there's not one answer to this question, because every student is different. There's no magic button I can push. I can help you articulate your learning goals and break them down into manageable steps. I can explain why you should care about what you're studying. My job is to help you identify the work to be done and build a strategy for tackling it. But ultimately, it will be up to you to do that work.
