Bio

A certified English teacher with 20 years experience in the high school and college classroom, I am passionate about helping students to learn and hone their skills in writing, literature, drama, public speaking, SAT/ACT preparation, and college essays. I have high standards, and do my best to help my students achieve not just "passing," but their best work--something to be proud of.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have taught Public speaking at the college and high school levels for 17 years. Within the classroom as an English teacher, my students would each year, many times, be asked to stand up and give a speech either of their own creation, or to give their own rendition of a famous speech. At the college level, I taught Com 101 for 2 years.

French,

French

I adore the French language, and after having studied a year of my undergraduate degree in Switzerland to gain proficiency in French, I have enjoyed teaching French for 4 years. It may seem difficult, but as with all things, practice in French makes all the difference. Grammar conquers all! I will help you along with your study, and help build your confidence!

English

I have taught English for the last 21 years at the high school level for 10 and the college level for 11 years. It is my passion to share my love of literature with students, and to help them find value in it as I do. My favorite genres are drama and poetry, and my favorite literature is American literature, and French existentialism.
Literature,

Literature

A love of literature is what lead me to the profession of teaching, and wanting to share the themes and experience of what good literature can bring us is my passion. Often I have been told that students did not like literature until they had me as a teacher to bring it to life for them!
