"Certified high school English teacher and avid lifelong learner dedicated to helping those in pursuit of greater knowledge and abilities achieve their fullest potential."
I specialize in high school English Language Arts, especially essay writing, narrative writing, and literary analysis. I believe a more just and equitable world is available to us through better and more focused educational opportunities that promote cultural literacy, critical thinking, and effective communication. I will strive to provide reliable, remote, and respectful academic support for high school and post-secondary students that produces real results. After a decade of working with young adults, this empathetic and creative Missourian works daily to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline and democratize the experience of providing and receiving a more equitable, empowering, and meaningful education for high schoolers, undergrads, and adult learners pursuing GEDs or other certifications.

"Do good, be good, make good." My hobbies include writing, walking, cooking, and lots of contemplation. Interests: My favorite bands are Wilco and Grateful Dead. The Incredible Hulk is my spirit animal. The greatest soft drink (in my opinion) is Diet Dr. Pepper. And grilled cheese is the perfect food, just in case you were wondering.
