I am a librarian, a literature buff and a history aficionado, and I am ready to help! I received my BA in History, with minors in English and Spanish from Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY (05/2009). My emphasis was on the psychology of history, examining the people of history and why they did what they did. My senior thesis was about Jim Jones, an American cult leader. I have also obtained a Master's of Science in Library Science from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY (12/2012).

Outside of school, my interests include reading, creative writing (creative fiction and creative nonfiction), and teaching small groups or tutoring one-on-one. I make a great tutor,according to clients both on Wyzant and off, in large part because I have an extensive background of helping people learn. As a result of this passion to cultivate success in my students, in all students, I have experience with various subjects and various age groups. I am well versed at tutoring students who are in primary, secondary, post-secondary, or non-traditional institutions.
