I received my Master of Arts in Education from Ursuline College and my Bachelor of Arts in English and Secondary Education from Cleveland State University. After teaching English and reading at the high school level, I was given the opportunity to teach college composition and developmental courses in writing and reading at Lorain County Community College. Although I stopped classroom teaching four years ago, I continued to tutor writing in person and online at the college. Prior to my college teaching, I became a franchisee for Sylvan Learning Centers where I worked with students of all levels in gaining confidence and academic success at my two centers in Ohio. I enjoy interacting with students to improve their writing skills both in academic and business applications. I balance my tutoring sessions with encouragement and questioning to ensure individuals can apply critical thinking, research techniques, and assignment requirements while growing to be accomplished independent learners. I also try to keep learning fun and challenging.
