I received by Bachelor of Arts from College of Charleston with a major in Creative Writing and a minor in Studio Art. I went on to receive my Masters in Fine Arts in Poetry from The Ohio State University, where I taught English classes focused in composition, rhetoric, analytical writing, and creative writing. Since graduating, I taught those same courses at College of Charleston, and am now on a poetry residency at Bucknell University. I have also tutored high school students from various backgrounds and at various levels extensively--both online and in person, and in both creative writing and analytical writing. It is my belief that reading, writing, and speaking are the basic skills we have to cultivate in order to communicate more effectively both in our personal and professional lives, and I am heavily invested in my students' writing, regardless of genre. My tutoring style is immersive and individuated--we will look closely, together, at your writing, and we will have conversations concerning areas for improvement and growth. As a student, I learned best by talking through my issues in any subject; I implement that strategy as a tutor and as an instructor. In my spare time, I listen to records, walk my dog, read and write poems, paint, and bike.
