I have been teaching and tutoring for over fifteen years. Before moving to Denver, I was an adjunct faculty member at Roosevelt University in Literature. Prior to teaching at Roosevelt, I was a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Literature, Communication and Culture at the Georgia Institute of Technology. As a Brittain Fellow I taught first-year composition courses to an interdisciplinary body of students for two and a half years. I was nominated for a Freshman Teacher of the Year Award and I received the Thank A Teacher Award, honors which I view as testaments to the creativity and dedication I bring to my teaching and the efficacy of my pedagogical approach. While I was pursuing my PhD at Emory I was a graduate fellow in the writing center and helped undergraduate and graduate students with everything from dissertations to graduate school application essays. I am fortunate to have taught in a variety of settings and to have worked with a broad range of students. From teaching English as a second language in Chile, New York and Colorado, to teaching literature and composition at Emory, Georgia Tech and Roosevelt, I have always given students individualized attention and met the needs of each student. I am confident that my experience and dedication will enable me to tutor you effectively. I have been teaching and tutoring for over fifteen years.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I currently teach literature at Roosevelt University. Having spent the past 15 years in higher education, I am a great resource for students as they apply to undergraduate and graduate programs. I helped countless students with their applications to graduate school while I was working as a Dean's Fellow at Emory University. Additionally, I have helped numerous students with the writing supplement for their undergraduate applications.
I was certified to teach ESL at New World Teachers in San Francisco, CA. After receiving certification, I moved to Santiago, Chile, where I taught ESL at Lecta, a private institute. When I returned to the US I taught ESL for three years at Rennert Bilingual in New York City. I began tutoring ESL students in Atlanta while I was pursuing my PhD in English at Emory University.
I have a PhD in English and have taught literature at the college level for more than five years. While I was a graduate student, I tutored high school students for their English exams and class meetings. I love discussing literature and have been effective at helping students become better at analyzing complex texts.
