First and foremost, I love learning! I've always had a love for all things literary, and my years as an undergraduate English major (with a double concentration in Literature and Language Arts) only served to further fuel that passion. In graduate school, I pursued a career in teaching English as a Second Language after getting bit by the teaching bug when volunteering at local schools.
Differentiating instruction to fit each student's learning style, preferences, and interests is at the core of my teaching - I believe every student can get excited about, learn, and master the English Language, and it's my goal to get them there.
For my full-time vocation, I teach elementary ESOL during the school year, which I adore, but I would also love to reach out to students beyond the elementary level for assistance with middle and high school English, college preparation, and the humanities. I welcome elementary students, as well, as my university courses have given me a strong background in teaching reading.
As well as teaching ESOL (just completed my first year this June), I have had experience in teaching Shakespeare to children and teens, curriculum development,journalism, and creative writing. I would love to work with you to discover the joy and excitement of learning!
