Hello! I'm a junior English major at Saint Martin's University. I'm passionate about helping students learn and I believe that I can learn as much from the students I tutor as they can learn from me.

I have experience as a private English tutor in the Lacey/Olympia area, helping students succeed in English classes and preparing students for the SAT/ACT. Also, I work as a Peer Reader in the SMU Writing Center, which gives me day-to-day experience working with diverse students at a variety of writing levels.

As a student, I work hard to maintain a high GPA (3.9) and to balance my course load, work and extracurricular activities. If you are curious about my test scores, I have included them below. Thanks for viewing my profile. I hope I can help you!
