I tutor English and anything related to English. I currently have a MS in library and information science and a BA in English (Linguistics), so I love anything to do with reading and the English language. I have taught high school and junior high English as well as been an elementary school library media specialist.

As much as I love to read, I have a passion for writing and that passion shows when I help others. Many of my teachers have told me I have a knack for writing and teaching others how to write well. When I was an undergrad, I tutored writing during my four years at ASU and loved it. During that time, I provided one-on-one and group tutoring in writing skills. I am also very familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago writing styles. My students as well as many professors gave me positive reviews.
