I've had a passion for learning from a very young age and am enthusiastic for the opportunity to pass on that passion to current students. I am a graduate of the University of Oregon where I earned a B.S. in Journalism, with a double emphases in Newspaper Editorial and Magazine. I have been a published writer for most of my professional career, with work appearing in award winning publications, such as Portland Monthly Magazine, Sustainable Business Oregon and The Portland Business Journal, where I also worked as a copy editor. In addition to tutoring, I work as a freelance writer and teach after school classes at an elementary school in Southeast Portland and formally tutored ESL students in Eugene, Ore.

I specialize in writing, English, grammar, literature and SAT prep. I am prepared to help with everything from preparing for test, homework help, and improving writing and editing skills.

I look forward to hearing from you helping you with your studies!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently working as a paid after school teacher at Buckman Elementary where I work with students ranging from K to 5th grade. I help kids with homework, study for test, and I teach classes ranging from writing and music to arts and crafts. I have passed background checks to work with children and am registered with Portland Public Schools.

Study Skills

I hold a Bachelor's degree from the University of Oregon where I used my own study skills to maintained well over a 3.0 GPA average. I also have 4 years of experience helping students with homework and helping students study for exams at both a K-12 and college level. During my time helping students study, I have never had a student fail an exam.


I have been playing the violin since I was about 7 years old, with experience playing in school orchestras, chamber groups, youth symphony and a small town symphony, at weddings and in solo competitions. I have experience helping teach orchestra to elementary students and have given one-on-one music lessons to both children and adults.
