I am a former journalist of 15 years who is now pursuing a master's degree in teaching from the University of Maryland. I am also a substitute teacher for Washington County Schools in Maryland, and serve as secretary on the Board of Directors for JuMP Mentoring in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. During my career as a journalist I won several awards for writing, including two first place prizes for Best Editorial.
I believe every student has a unique set of strengths, and it's a teacher's job to develop and hone these strengths. I enjoy helping students find confidence and passion for learning. I tutor all subjects related to English: Reading, writing, literature.
