Bio

I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English and American Literatures and a focus in Creative Writing. I then earned my Masters in Teaching Secondary English. What I love about learning and teaching English is the big questions that reading and writing can ask us about the world.

I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English and American Literatures and a focus in Creative Writing. I then earned my Masters in Teaching Secondary English. What I love about learning and teaching English is the big questions that reading and writing can ask us about the world. Studying literature taught me to question the world around me and to look more deeply into myself. My classroom, to that end, is thinking-based, rather than skill-based. We analyze and discuss before we practice simple skills, while most classrooms are the other way around. I believe that all students have complex, valuable ideas and can think critically, and that when we ask students what they think, what they can do becomes much more accessible.

I have experience teaching 9th and 11th grade English, and am certified to teach both Middle and High School Levels. Much of my work with students take place in small group or one-on-one settings outside of a class period. I can support students in working on any aspect of literacy, from basic grammar to advanced rhetoric. I am also trained in SAT Prep. I have taught students from 4th grade reading levels up to college reading levels, students who are learning English, and students with Special Education needs. I have learned how crucial it is to understand how my students learn as individuals, so that the lessons I plan for them are suited to their growth and achievement. I will get to know your student, meet them where they are, and maximize their learning and through deep critical thinking.

Please reach out to schedule a meeting or a lesson. I look forward to helping your student meet their goals!

Songwriting

I began writing songs a little over 2 years ago, and have been writing ever since. I put out my first album in July; you can listen to it on any music platform. I spent this summer and fall touring the country playing my music. I have been selected for Advanced Songwriting Workshops and won contests with my songs.
