I am an 2010 honors graduate of California State University, Sacramento, where I earned a Second B.A. in Music, Flute (2010). I also earned a M.A. in English (Creative Writing), 2005, and a Certificate to Teach Composition, 2004, both at California State University, Sacramento. My first B.A. is in English Education, 2001, from Humboldt State University.
Since 2007, I have taught English Composition in Sacramento, California as an Adjunct Professor at American River College. I am also Online Associate Faculty in the College of Humanities at University of Phoenix, where I have taught writing since 2009, and am Online Associate Faculty in the English Department at Ashford University, where I have taught writing since 2012. I am a published poet, short story writer, and essayist. I have tutored writing one-on-one since the mid 1990s, working in tutoring centers at Ventura College, Humboldt State University, and California State University, Sacramento. Since 2006, I have tutored athletes at California State University, Sacramento in writing, as well. I am also experienced in tutoring music theory and music history.
I enjoy tutoring since it allows me to tailor my instruction and support to the individual student. Tutoring is all about listening to the student, respecting him or her, and making a supportive relationship. You will find me patient and focused; I am eager to help you succeed.
