I am an experienced educator with 35 years of experience teaching in the area of Human Communication. My work has been with college students, dual-enrolled high school students, and high school debaters. I am passionate about helping students because when I was a student I did not receive much help from my teachers or my parents. My approach is to be honest with the students about how to succeed. I cover topics such as understanding expectations, time management, research, outlining, and of course Public Speaking and any other Human Communication subject. I focus on student success and work to empower students to take charge of their education. I help them with tasks such as communicating with their teacher and how to be effective in group learning situations. I received my education in Michigan and Florida. I have a PhD in Speech Communication Education from The Florida State University, a B.A and M.A in Speech Communication from Wayne State University, and by Sept. 2022 will hold a M.A. in Educational Studies from the University of Michigan along with a Certificate in Learning Experience Design. I tutor in the following subjects: Composition, Library Research, Outlining for papers and speeches, Debate, Public Speaking, and Student Success. My favorite subject is Student Success because if a student knows how to be a student, they can really thrive.
My teaching philosophy involves student empowerment. My tutoring style is to treat students with respect and dignity, talk to them frankly, and support them in their learning journey. I tend to ask a lot of questions and work with the student to choose to set up personal goals. I then help them meet those goals. Outside of academia, I'm a big fan of live music and taking photos outside in nature. I also like to paint and draw.
