I am a writer with more than 10 years of publishing experience and a high school educator who recently taught Literature Classics and Composition, as well as British Literature at a private high school in Olney, Maryland. My expertise is in writing (all forms,including research writing and outlining, as well as fiction and essay writing), reading comprehension, grammar, and I have assisted students with the writing and critical reading sections of the SAT.

While teaching, I found no greater joy than working with students who needed assistance and miss the one-on-one interaction I engaged in with them as an educator. Now that I have a son of my own, I have chosen to tutor in order to continue doing what I love: helping young minds achieve academic success, while also remaining available to my son.

Works I have taught include Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, Shakespeare (Sonnets, Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet), Romantic Poetry,
Lord of the Flies, The Chosen, 1984 and Brave New World.

I tutor from my home office and my rates are $50/hour.
