I make an extraordinary teacher, mentor, tutor, and coach because of a strong combination of human empathy and a deep love of learning. I specialize in the English language
and its various literatures, vocabulary
, and grammar
, as well as creative and critical thinking skills.
As an undergraduate, I majored in philosophy
and English, with a minor in creative writing
. I was known in my English department as a keen analytic thinker and lively conversationalist. I was known in my philosophy department for an exceptional ability to render difficult concepts into everyday language. Across the board, I was recognized as an independent thinker and a talented essayist. I won the Haynes Prize for Essays in Philosophy in 2002.
In addition, I bring to the table the perspective gained through considerable real-world and professional experience. While I worked my way through university as a residential care provider for adults with severe developmental disabilities, I have also employed my written and verbal communications skills in fields as diverse as radio broadcasting, journalism
, sales, and as Director of Education for a start-up dot com company delivering online creative writing classes.
I am eager to work with gifted and bright traditional students concerned with vocabulary and reading
comprehension for the ACT
, or GRE
. I am equally at home with adult learners pursuing a GED
or a return to studies after considerable absence and in balance with adult responsibilities.
I look forward to e-mailing or chatting with you soon to learn how I can best serve your learning needs or those of a child or loved one.

The method of helping slaves escape was called "underground" because it had to be kept secret.
Plantation owners in the South relied upon slave labor. They did not want the slaves to escape. The slaves had to sneak away and would be severely punished if caught.
It might make a good beginning to identify the source of the quoted statement and to learn a little more about that source. The quoted text does not come from the play itself. The statement isn't "from Hamlet" or even from Shakespeare's pen; it's from
the related field of Shakespeare...
