I teach English grammar review, vocabulary, personal marketing, and personal finance to adults at a local nonprofit as part of a jobs-training program. I am patient with students. It is my hope that students not only memorize material but ingest it, understand it, and use it in their everyday lives. I find that success is a little easier when students do not look at their lessons as "work."

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and graduate coursework in Business Management. I use my knowledge of management and my journalism skills to build a good working relationship to try to get to the root of the problem and to problem solve.

I enjoy teaching and equally enjoy when I see that students fully comprehend what they have been taught. I see this as all-around success.
