I have been teaching college-level English and composition for the last two years. I have also taught adult continuing education courses in Creative Writing and French.
I graduated in May 2009 with an MFA in Children's Literature, creative writing from Hollins University. I also have a Bachelor's in English from Brigham Young University where I earned a 3.5 GPA.
I have long had a solid understanding of English grammar; friends have requested my help with their papers since I was in high school.
I also have studied French from high school through the university level, and I lived in France for a year and a half as a missionary in 1995 and 1996.
I've taken my skills onto the next level by teaching in a few settings. In addition to the above mentioned teaching experiences, I taught preschool and at the adjoined before/after school program, French to young missionaries, English to French speaking children and adults, and I have subbed in a K-12 school district. I have also volunteered as a tutor for Alexandria school students, helping with French, English, and elementary math.
I have also taught English as a Second Language to a group of Korean students for one summer.
I have been tutoring for WyZant since summer of 2009, and I have assisted adults and children, including French, ESL, middle school writing, and elementary math and reading.
