Greetings! I am currently a full-time English teacher with five years of classroom experience. I received undergraduate degrees in both English and Theater performance. I have been tutoring in various capacities for the past eleven years helping students in grades 5-12 reach their full potential and discover a life-long love of my subject.

Writing and Reading:

I have a genuinely infectious enthusiasm for writing and literature, and I adore sharing this with my students. My strengths are in teaching editing skills, proofreading, helping students find their voice as writers, and fostering reading comprehension through in-depth analysis. It is so critically important for students to perfect the skills of essay writing and short constructed response. Additionally, I cannot stress enough the necessity for students to not only understand the surface level of both non-fiction and fiction texts, but also to be able to decipher and analyze the deeper thematic meaning behind what they are reading.

Organization and Study Skills:

I also take great satisfaction in helping clients with organization. Sometimes, this takes the form of working with a student to sort through stuffed backpacks and tornadoes of school papers. I find that my personal childhood experience helps me approach these students with empathy. As far as organization goes, I was fairly disorganized as a child until a tutor took the time to show me how to make sense out of the piles of paper spilling out of my binder. I enjoy providing the same service for my students.

Public Speaking and Interview Skills:

Additionally, I excel at preparing clients for various public speaking tasks, such as interview prep, speech writing, and poise. I believe that everyone is capable of presenting themselves as a strong and confident orator as long as someone is willing to take the time to provide the tools for this success.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Theater

I have been studying theater since the age of five. In addition to going to grad school for English education, I am also going to take the GACE in Theater, as it is my dream job to teach that subject, in addition to English. I have directed, acted, stage managed, and worked tech all through my college career. Also, I have worked in theater camps for 6 summers training students in performance and technical subjects. In February, I am actually co-directing a high school production of Romeo&Juliet. I have excelled in college-level classes in Period Styles, Scenic Design, Advanced Acting, Directing, Movement and Voice for the Actor, and Theater History.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I received an undergraduate major in theater performance and have taught at theater performance camps for several summers. I have been asked to provide the voiceover for a recital for the LaGrange College production of Sweeny Todd. In addition to this, I was frequently chosen to give tours to large groups of visiting parents and students. I was also asked to speak at a lunch for the school's donors. I am very comfortable and confident in speaking for large audiences as I performed in many plays and have presented many speeches, but I also have directed several shows and posess skills in encouraging and teaching younger presenters to organize their speeches and master bad habits.
