I completed my M.S.Ed. at the University of Pennsylvania in the Reading, Writing and Literacy program in January 2012 and currently hold a k-12 Reading Specialist certification.

I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 2007, where I majored in English and minored in Linguistics. I am knowledgeable about English literature, as well as grammar, and expository writing techniques. I am a patient educator, and make sure my students understand the material before moving on. Because of my Linguistics background I have a good understanding of grammatical patterns and am able to use different approaches and find what works best for individuals.

At this time I am working at an after school program with students in grades 4-6. I enjoy the after school setting because it provides more time to get to know students and allow them to explore their interests and talents.

I received my BA in English from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2007 and am knowledgeable in the study of literature, writing and English grammar. I've been a lifelong reader/writer and also minored in Linguistics as an undergraduate student so I have a strong interest in language/literacy.


As an undergraduate student I minored in Linguistics, studying phonetics, language acquisition, syntax, and other nuances of grammar. In graduate school I studied reading development, which included strategies and skills in phonics. I am a certified k-12 Reading Specialist in the state of Pennsylvania.


I have a good deal of experience proofreading my own papers and collaborating with classmates/ colleagues in graduate school. I have a solid understanding of English grammar and writing standards.


I received my Master of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania in January 2012 in their Reading/Writing/Literacy program. I am familiar with effective techniques to help struggling readers (especially young readers) and have taken classes in adult literacy.
