I am a former high school English instructor (eight years). I currently teach English on the collegiate level. My areas of expertise include ACT PREP (English, Reading, & Writing), English Language Arts, Literature (multiple genres), and Analytical writing. I taught 11th and 12th grade English for 7 years. I served as the lead teacher and chair of the English department.

I believe in catering to individual learning styles and I contend that learning is a process that includes both struggles and success. I have experience working with students who perform on grade level, above grade level, below grade, as well as students who are "identified", and students who speak English as a second language.

I am patient, fun, accommodating, and yet still effective and firm. I have Masters degrees from Samford University and University of Alabama at Birmingham and an English degree from University of Montevallo.

If you are struggling or even would like to enhance your knowledge, schedule a lesson today. Being proficient in English is a powerful lifelong asset.
