A kind and friendly child advocate, I have dedicated my career to working with youth as both a therapist and educator. Having completed my undergraduate work at St. Mary's College and a Master's in Education at Duquesne University, I have garnered extensive experience as an editorial assistant at The Chicago Sun-Times, certified school counselor and a Secondary English teacher. I believe one's education and/or academia are essential elements of personal and professional success. I am patient, thorough and thoughtful in my approach to tutoring students with an evidence-based approach to learning. Excelled in essay proofreading, I welcome any/all opportunity to review assigned papers regardless of grade/level of education and/or subject matter. In addition to essay review, I am proficient in writing development and interpretation of literature. Having worked with a variety of ages and levels of achievement, I cater my tutoring approach to the needs of my student.
A single mother of two adult children, they provide consistent inspiration and motivation to all aspects of my life.
