I am a graduate from The University of Houston, holding a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, Creative Writing. I worked as a teacher's assistant for three years, working with children ages 6-10.

To be perfectly honest about myself, I am very much in love with the entire writing process, and I love reading and literature. I truly believe that we can learn so much about a culture by examining its literature and its language, in turn giving us a greater understanding of the human experience.

Personally, I learn best by memorization. However, I do not sit and repeat something again and again. Rather, I memorize by engaging all of my senses, and it's a method I think that would make anyone successful at learning a subject.

In my free time, I take an Arabic language course at Houston Community College and I like to run. I completed my first half marathon last October in San Francisco!

I don't really have a mantra that I live by, but I do think that everyone is intelligent and capable, but we all need a little push sometimes.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Have a beautiful day!

English

I have a degree in English, Creative Writing from The University of Houston. In addition to my education, I worked for three years at an elementary school with children ranging from ages 6-10.

Grammar

I have a degree in English, Creative Writing from The University of Houston. Many classes I took were writing intensive, and possessing knowledge of proper grammar is essential to passing and doing well in those courses.

Literature

Not only do I hold a degree in English, Creative Writing from The University of Houston, but I've been a zealous reader since a very early age. I've read, reread, and analyzed many classics over the years, for both educational and personal gain.

Proofreading

Part of earning a Creative Writing degree is participating in peer workshops and criticism. Not only do you proofread peer's work, but a lot of proofreading must go into your own work. I also write copy for a living where proofreading is crucial.

Reading

I've been an avid reader since I was very young. I believe this has helped me understand language and how to write properly.

SAT Writing

This will mostly consist of teaching basic composition. Like math, there is a formula for this kind of writing--it's standard and easy to grasp.

Spelling

I have a very good grasp on how to spell properly. Being an avid reader and writer has given me that skill. If there's anything I'm unsure about, I look it up.

Vocabulary

As with spelling, if I do not know something I easily look it up. I do not always have the right answer in a specific moment, but I always find the right answer quickly.

Writing

I hold a degree in English, Creative Writing; I also write copy for a living.
