I haven't always been good at writing. I feel like there was something missed between high school and college and it took me years to learn how to write a good essay. I don't want that to happen to you/your children. I can teach from the very basics of grammar and sentence construction to writing thesis statements and closing paragraphs. Writing can be a scary thing for a lot of people. I will guide them through it.

In teaching literature and reading I am very passionate about people reading, enjoying what they've read and understanding it. I also understand that literature assigned to students in class may not be easy or enjoyable for them, but I hope to at minimum help them to understand what they're reading and at maximum help them engage and relate to the material. I will do this by explaining the subtext and putting it into a story they can relate to.

I believe in the use of positive reinforcement and patience to create a nonthreatening learning environment.
