I really enjoy helping people succeed. I know reading and writing assignments are not always easy for students, and everyone needs help at some point in their studies. Sometimes it’s just a matter of adding a new strategy here and there so that learning becomes more enjoyable and so students can achieve better results. I am happy to share what I know.

Whether it’s writing an essay, reading a book, studying for the ACT, or understanding an article in a newspaper, success is based on having a good vocabulary and good comprehension. I can help students at many different levels become more successful by organizing their writing, finding ways to relate to stories so they are enjoyable to read, knowing the roots of words so that larger words can be broken down, or understanding the context and facts presented in articles or paragraphs. I enjoy providing tools that help students complete assignments successfully. I enjoy sharing my love for reading and literature, too.

I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in strategic public relations. I have a degree in history from the University of Michigan, and I have also taken courses in news writing and media editing at Oakland University. I love writing, and it has been a big part of my career. I write business correspondence, marketing copy, feature articles for newspapers, and persuasive speeches.

I have successfully tutored family members and fellow classmates, and I have helped friends and colleagues edit their essays so their words “pop.” I really enjoy interacting and connecting with students one-on-one. I have learned to listen well and help people diagnose problem areas, so we can strategize appropriate solutions. I am patient, flexible and thorough, and I believe that it can – and should – be fun to learn. I look forward to helping students achieve their goals.
