I recently completed coursework in Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow in Scotland and I'm excited to be back home to help students excel! I am enthusiastic about being a catalyst for positive change, and my number one goal is to help my students exceed their own (high) expectations. I believe that writing is fun, and if it doesn't seem that way, it's not being taught correctly. The same goes for reading, English, literature, grammar and vocabulary. When the teacher truly enjoys her work, it shows. The student will enjoy learning. Even further, the class or tutoring session is FUN. Teachers who have fun, who enjoy their work, who transfer their enthusiasm to the students - get results. It's that simple. Prepare to meet that teacher!

I've been writing professionally for 13 years in advertising, television, publishing, marketing and online humor. I've recently completed work on my first book and look forward to receiving my MFA in December. I've taught undergraduate courses in Creative Writing and this past summer lead writing workshops with teens and tweens in Biggar, Scotland. I enjoy leading private writing workshops and hope to work with middle and high school students again via youth programs part time, while teaching full time at the university and college level.

I look forward to meeting you and changing your perception and experience of the subject you're struggling to master. It can be done. We'll do it together.
