For the last ten years of my life, I have devoted myself to helping students have a passion for reading and writing. I feel deeply that these two things go hand-in-hand. Even in an increasingly digital society, having a greater understand for the English Language through reading and writing will set students apart from others. Reading and writing lay the ground work for excellent communication skills, which will impact their future for the better.
I have an undergraduate degree in English with a Creative Writing emphasis, as well as a Masters in Library and Information Science. These two degrees have played an integral part in my success in the education field for the last seven years. I am well versed in the literature available to students and have had noted success in teaching students effective research skills on a variety of topics from history to science. In addition, I worked with small groups of various ability and grade levels in an elementary after school tutoring program for the last five to six years.
My approach is to find simple, yet creative ways to make learning fun- no matter the topic. I meet them at their level and cater to their needs accordingly. Successes and failures will be celebrated because I believe every time you "fail", you are one step closer to success. I am knowledgeable and passionate about teaching others how to become successful readers and writers. Looking forward to helping you out soon!!
