Bio

Hello! I have been working for five years as a high school English teacher, working from grades 9 through 11. Prior to that, I used to work as a Special Education Paraprofessional in a middle school. I have both a Bachelors degree and a Masters in Education. I went into teaching for a couple of reasons. One, I love imparting knowledge and helping students become engaged in texts. I’m a lifelong learner myself and want to share that drive with my students. Second, I wanted to teach students in...

Hello! I have been working for five years as a high school English teacher, working from grades 9 through 11. Prior to that, I used to work as a Special Education Paraprofessional in a middle school. I have both a Bachelors degree and a Masters in Education. I went into teaching for a couple of reasons. One, I love imparting knowledge and helping students become engaged in texts. I’m a lifelong learner myself and want to share that drive with my students. Second, I wanted to teach students in ways that relate to real world experiences and elements that are meaningful to them. I spent too much time just being given workbooks and no reason why we were doing them. I wanted to change that.

I get it, English is not everyone’s favorite subject. However, I’m always known by my students as the fun and nerdy teacher who goes out of their way to help students. I use pop culture references and real world examples to make material accessible to all my students. Even if my students don’t love English when they leave my classroom, they get it and have a better appreciation for it. In general, I love helping people reach their goals and succeed, which is what has driven me to teaching and tutoring. I get a lot of pride out of helping struggling students understand things they did not think were possible.

Due to my experience in grades 7-12, I have covered a large amount of English content. While I do have experience teaching literature, I have done a large amount with reading and reading comprehension strategies. My focus for many years at my school has been assisting struggling readers to improve their reading prowess through vocabulary and other reading exercises. I have also served as a copy editor to books, which has given me experience with grammar and proofreading. I am the go-to person at my school with anything related to editing,

I look forward to getting to meet you and working towards your personal goals! Please feel free to contact me with any questions and to set up appointments!
