First and foremost, I love being a teacher. In fact, I loved to play school when I was a kid. (Yes, that was many years ago.) I could not imagine myself being anything but a teacher.
I graduated from a small Christian College. Southern Wesleyan University in 1985. In 1991, I received my M.Ed. from The Citadel.
However, I am a lifelong learner. I am constantly growing and improving myself.
You guessed it. I have been teaching for many years. I have spent the last 25 years teaching special education in an inner city school district.
Through the years, I have taught Freshman Literature as well as Sophomore and Junior Literature.
I have taught everything from Shakespeare, The Crucible, and Two Trains Running by the late August Wilson.
I have taught all the major essays such as narrative, descriptive, and persuasive essays. When I analyze your essay, I take both a holistic and a line by line approach.
Currently, I am teaching a reading program that incorporates all these different approaches to writing.
Needless to say, my favorite subjects to tutor are writing and literature.
I am a hands-on teacher. I am going to take where you are in your skill and move you forward. I have a very positive approach to teaching. Of course, as a special education teacher, I often take a different approach to teaching. My approach is individualized to your particular needs.
During my free-time, I enjoy creative writing. Reading. Spending time with my friends and family.
