I have a BA in English literature from St. Mary's College of Maryland, and I spent a semester studying Medieval literature at Oxford University. I have taught English as a Second Language in Thailand and Malaysia in addition to the United States.
My favorite subjects to teach are reading and writing. I love writing so much I have even written a novel! I love helping my students gain a deep understanding of the works they read and communicate their ideas effectively and eloquently in writing. My background in ESL has also given me a meticulous understanding of English grammar.
As you might guess, my favorite hobby besides reading and writing is traveling. I have lived in four different countries and traveled to eighteen! To me, reading and traveling are two sides of the same coin: they both allow us to step away from ourselves and appreciate the complexity of the world we live in and the people who inhabit it.
As a tutor, I dedicate myself to identifying each of my students' strengths and weaknesses and helping them become the best writer they can be!
