I currently live overseas. These experiences allow me to help students from a multitude of backgrounds improve in English.

As a tutor I help students with everyday classwork as well as prepping for big exams or tackling large writing assignments.
I have an undergraduate degree in English with an emphasis on Literature as well as some graduate course work for teaching Reading and Writing.
