With a Bachelor's degree in psychology, a minor in anthropology, and a Master's degree in English--specifically, creative writing--more specifically, fiction--I have developed a broad and interdisciplinary knowledge base. This experience allows me to help a wide range of fellow travelers navigate their way along their chosen academic path. This term--fellow traveler--is how I conceive of the relationship between student and tutor: we both come to a given subject with varying degrees of knowledge and experience, and I try to lend mine in helping students find their own answers and understanding of their given subjects or tasks. I teach writing at the college level, but I also have several years of experience in 1-on-1 tutoring in a number of subjects, including preparation for the SAT, ACT, and ISEE tests in math and science, as well as in the humanities, social sciences, reading, writing, and grammar.

While I can tutor in many different subjects, my favorite subject to tutor is English, particularly reading and writing. A little-known secret is that reading is a lot of fun, but this can get lost in the process of teaching it. I try to find a way to connect whatever I am reading to my own life, or, more importantly, to your life. Whenever we can make such a connection with the author, our reading becomes deeper and more relevant to our own lives.

As for writing, this is an extension of one's thinking, so learning how to write with proficiency also means learning how to think with proficiency. Writing is a big subject, however, and becoming proficient can be a lifelong process. I take this approach into my tutoring. We can focus on basic grammar or advanced rhetorical choices, but in every case, I try to help you develop a foundation from which to continue develop your writing.

In my free time, I enjoy playing cards (poker and bridge, in particular), playing the guitar and/or bass guitar, and writing fiction. In addition, I like to play video games and watch basketball and American grid-iron football--my love for the Dallas Cowboys is deep and abiding.
