Bio

I chose to become a high school teacher for two specific reasons: my passion for literature and my passion for helping students realize their own potential. After teaching for 8 years, that passion has only increased, and I believe that it is in the one-on-one interactions between teacher and students that some of the best learning occurs.

I chose to become a high school teacher for two specific reasons: my passion for literature and my passion for helping students realize their own potential. After teaching for 8 years, that passion has only increased, and I believe that it is in the one-on-one interactions between teacher and students that some of the best learning occurs. Practical application of reading and writing skills in conjunction with conversation helps students become successful and build confidence in their abilities. I push my students to not only know the how but why of the topic as well. Such meta-congnitive and critical thinking skills help students become self sufficient while improving their skill set.

My passion for learning carries over into my own goals in the classroom too. I graduated summa cum laude with my Bachelors Degree in English and History with a certificate in Secondary Education, then began my 8 year high school teaching career where I was the student elected Teacher of the Year for the last two school years. While teaching a full course load, I also graduated summa cum laude with a Masters in Literature. I have chosen to leave the high school classroom for a bit to pursue my PhD in Literature. I am currently in coursework and teaching writing at the college level.

I have experience teaching honors and regular courses in the 9th Grade Literature Survey, American Literature, and British Literature. I also taught AP Language and AP Literature, and I am currently teaching College Writing. I have conducted ACT prep for the Reading, English, and Writing portions of the test, and I was responsible for writing and implementing a new grammar curriculum for my former school, which helped student writing and standardized test scores.

I have flexible hours and am willing to work around student schedules. I do have a 12 hour cancellation policy, but I'm more than willing to reschedule tutoring sessions. I prefer tutoring at either a local coffee shop or bookstore.

I look forward to hearing from you!
