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
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

Since I know other tutors might find it difficult to find things, I thought I'd share a few of the more fun ideas I've had...
As a substitute teacher, I've been in positions that have allowed me both to visit with and to observe teachers from a unique perspective. For example, as a resource substitute, I have followed students around the building, or sat and helped a small number
of students in a classroom. Because I'm a sub, something of a lower class citizen perhaps, it has seemed to me that many teachers have not...
