If your or your child's goals include growing in ability, gaining confidence, and experiencing a love for life and learning, you owe it to yourself to get in touch with me! My work ethic, determination to rise above and beyond in my tutoring, and profound love for people are essential in my life.
I can't say enough how much I value the strengths and potential in each person I work with. It is this quality, among many others, that makes me a truly excellent educator. While I have extremely high expectations for all my students, I adjust my approach for each student in order to best serve him or her; for many of my students, for example, I design specific programs centered around goals, strengths, and areas for improvement. I am very familiar with different learning styles and see education as an extremely holistic matter. In fact, I hold and research perspectives about education that I love to share.
I am a full-time tutor and am primarily an English tutor, writing coach, editor, and college prep specialist with an English degree and a high school English teaching license. Please do not miss my subject descriptions, as they contain a wealth of helpful information. I most enjoy editing and working with my students (of all ages) on grammar, college essays, literary analysis essays, and contemporary plays/novels, but I adore all the various kinds of work I do with my students!
One of my main goals with my teaching is to break down the rampant [over]complications, haziness, and pretentiousness that usually accompany writing, reading, and grammar in our society--and in our school system. Many of my adult students in particular appreciate my no-nonsense approach to grammar and love that they can feel comfortable asking me questions they would feel 'stupid' asking in other situations.
I am extremely upbeat, positive, spunky, and passionate by nature. As a painter, professional musician, slam poet, writer, fencer, songwriter, blogger, actress, designer, and more, I am interested in a great, great many things, and I do not take my life or work lightly. I constantly strive to push myself out of my comfort zone, learn new things, and improve my life and work.
My cherished commitment to bringing the dreams of my tutoring and editing clients to fruition is a very visceral, real thing for me. I lend absolutely unprecedented energy, love, compassion, and determination to everything I do with my students; helping them grow as people and learners in this world is my passion and obsession!
Thank you for reading.
