My name is Erika and in December 2012 I graduated from the University of Southern California with a BA. I majored in Comparative Literature and minored in Russian. I wrote my Senior Honors Thesis in Literature and Film-- I got an A on my research and presentation of my thesis, which satisfied the Honors credit of my BA. I am currently applying to graduate schools and I hope to begin work on my Ph.D. in Fall 2014. I plan on pursuing a career as a professor of literature. I am also in the process of getting my creative writing published in various literary magazines.
Reading and writing are my two biggest passions. I would love to help others share in my love of reading, writing, and English. I'm a very patient person who is excellent with children. I babysat for years and volunteered for my church's summer camp-- kids love me! I am planning on spending the rest of my life working with literature; to be able to help children foster a love of reading and learning would be truly rewarding work that I would love to be involved with.
