I have a passion for writing and a desire to see others become more effective communicators through the written word.
I have taught high school English for thirteen years, focusing on writing skills, grammar, and critical reading. I have also taught 5th grade for three years, giving me proficiency in Elementary language arts. For eight years I taught an honors-level high school class intended to prepare students for the AP Language and AP Literature tests. My desire to see students succeed led me to create and teach an SAT/ACT/College Prep elective at my school in which students would practice the skills necessary to perform well on those exams as well as to prepare them for applying for both college admission and financial aid. In both this elective and my English classes, I have helped students to craft excellent college admission essays for their applications to major universities. I also provide essay and term paper writing assistance for high school and college-level students.
I have experience working with English Language Learners and learning-assisted students in the mainstream, English-only classroom. My degree in English is from the University of California, Riverside with teacher credentialing through the program at California State University, Long Beach.
I am a high school English teacher with thirteen years' experience. I have also taught SAT and ACT prep electives for students wishing to improve their test-taking skills and their scores on these standardized tests.
I have a religious studies degree from the University of California, Riverside. I obtained it while leading dorm-based Bible studies for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I have been studying the Bible for over twenty years, going so far as to take New Testament Greek at UCR to further my studies.
I have taught an International Bible class which involved presenting a survey of the Old and New Testaments to ESL/ELD students at a private Christian school.
I have a religious studies degree from the University of California, Riverside. I obtained it while leading dorm-based Bible studies for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I have been studying the Bible for over twenty years, going so far as to take New Testament Greek at UCR to further my studies. Through my course of study and my personal studies, I have become familiar with the history and tenets of Christianity (first century, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox, as well as modern "non-denominational" evangelicalism), Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Wicca, and various "New Age" beliefs. Methods courses helped me to analyze the various means of studying and evaluating religions as used by scholars and laymen.
