I am an English professor at Houston Community College (HCC). I possess a BA in English from the University of St. Thomas in Houston and an MA in English from University College Cork in Ireland. Aside from teaching at HCC, I have tutored high school and college students needing help with writing, along with ESL students needing assistance in English language skills.

I am patient and good-humored. I have diverse interests outside of my main field of English literature (e.g., history and social studies). Outside advanced mathematics and music, I feel competent tutoring most subjects at the primary and secondary level.

Additionally, while I was living in Colorado this summer, I passed the PLACE exams for teaching social studies and English at the secondary level, qualifying me to teach both subjects in Colorado high schools.

Finally, I was recently approved to substitute teach a St. John's School.

Please feel free to message me with any questions you may have.
