I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with Master's degree in Creative Writing with a publishing emphasis. Additionally, my Bachelor's degrees are in English and Spanish. I am a certified English teacher, and have worked extensively in education - 22 years, to be exact - helping middle school, high school, and community college students achieve their academic aspirations. I have taught all English Language Arts subjects at the high school level (literature and composition), and I am also certified to teach ESOL students, and have done so throughout my career. Perhaps my favorite topic to teach is writing, and I am a firm believer that everyone has a writing voice and style to cultivate, even if they tend to struggle in this area. I have taught in public education as well as private education venues, and have tutored one-on-one as well as small groups at the high school and college levels. I have even tutored in Spain! I would describe my teaching and tutoring style as dynamic and engaging. I work to build a strong rapport with students, and I persist in positive reinforcement techniques. I am also an extensively published writer of poetry and prose. Outside of teaching and tutoring, I love to read, listen to all types of music, watch films, travel, do volunteer work, hike, and ride my bicycle! I also love cats.
