I am a credentialed English teacher with classroom experience and currently tutor English to all levels of students in primary, middle and high school. With my help, my students have raised CST/STAR, SAT and TOEFL scores, have overcome writing blocks and test anxiety issues and have earned high marks in their language arts classes.

I also have a background in theater and love to teach creative writing and Shakespeare, as well as coach students with their acting monologues.
