My love of teaching comes from a life-long love of learning. As a first-generation college student, I learned to navigate the system through deliberate experience. As a magna cum laude graduate and a veteran, I know that hard work and dedication to learning pay off. As a tutor and university instructor, I share decades of practical strategy with students of all kinds. Together, we boost grades and test scores. I see them realize their potential and gain confidence along the way. I love this work!

I specialize in English, writing, and study skills for success in school and on the SAT, ACT, CLEP, ACCUPLACER, and STAAR exams. I work with students from age 7 to 67 on a variety of subjects, projects, and skills. I guarantee to challenge, but not overwhelm you.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for an unsatisfactory lesson. In my classrooms, I maintain 100% retention, 100% progress, and 100% positive feedback. I guarantee results.

While I apply a 12-hour cancellation policy, I also keep a flexible schedule and offer make-up classes.

I want you to enjoy a quiet, comfortable study space, so I work in several convenient locations, including your own.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

Prior to entering academia, I worked as a public affairs/media relations specialist for the U.S. Government. In that capacity, I spoke to media at the local, state, national, and international level, constructing and delivering talking points, mission messages, and situational de-briefs for many audiences. Since 2010, I have been an active speaker in academia, averaging 4-5 public presentations per year on various topics to various audiences.

Study Skills

Since 2011, I have taught Effective Learning, an educational psychology course that covers all aspects of study skills. I have also completed all coursework toward a PhD in Developmental Education, the field of study related to assisting under-prepared students in making the successful transition to higher education.
