I am a proud graduate of the University of St. Thomas. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Literature, as well as a minor in medieval studies. I have an extensive history of teaching and tutoring, beginning in high school when I worked for three years as a tour guide for elementary school classes. While working towards my undergraduate degree, I worked as a private English tutor, and was later recommended to and hired by my university's tutorial center. I have worked with elementary aged children, middle-schoolers, high schoolers, undergraduates, and graduate students. While I am comfortable tutoring any subject under the large umbrella of "English" (ex: reading comprehension, grammar, etc) I am most passionate about helping students comprehend difficult literature and write excellent essays! My students oftentimes come to sessions stressed and anxious about their assignments, but then leave with peace of mind and confidence. I am a firm believer that encouragement and positive reinforcement inspire academic success, and nothing makes me happier than seeing my students use the tools I give them to tackle difficult assignments with enthusiasm.

When I'm not teaching my amazing students, I love to read, spend time with my cat, play chess, or brew a cup of tea!
