I began my college education with the intention of being an elementary school teacher. During my sophomore year, however, I decided to major in English instead. I received my BA in English (with an emphasis on language and literature) from Grand Valley State University in 2008. After graduation, I moved to New York for an internship with Entertainment Weekly. I came back home to MI and have a good job working with digital media and content management, but I'm still passionate about education. I decided to start tutoring so I could help students discover how rewarding it can be to learn. More than anything, I want to help people appreciate and enjoy the written word. I find nothing more satisfying than introducing people to the joys of reading. I'm knowledgeable in grammar, spelling, reading, writing, and literary theory. I believe in a hands-on approach to teaching, and I like to communicate with students to better understand how they learn. Everyone learns differently and one child may require a different style of tutoring than another. I want to do my best to help every child not only understand the material, but learn to enjoy it as well.
