I am a prior SAT Test Grader for ETS: I graded thousands of English tests for high school grad level students planning for a greater college experience. I know exactly what the SAT organizers seek.

I also taught a middle school Mock Trial class and took my first class to the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.

For ten years, I was an Illinois licensed lawyer IN GOOD STANDING and reviewed, created, and/or edited hundreds of thousands of documents for many major law firms and/or other public or private entities.

Years ago, I worked in Grand Rapids, MI as a substitute teacher for all grades. I know minimal Spanish, but am well versed in many other course and taught English to students.

In college, I received dual degrees as an undergraduate major in Biology and English Language and Literature. With my law degree, I have practiced both corporate law and litigation: I use my English skills daily as part of my degree. I am very organized, hard-working, and kind. I believe that: PATIENCE, TRUST, AND RESPECT FOR STUDENTS IS MY FIRST PRIORITY.

My own kids are high schoolers, both with highest honors. I am very proud.

You are welcome to contact me day or night with any English Lit question!!!

I hold both a law degree and Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. I have taught K through twelve and my middle school Mock Trial team went to the State Championship for writing and speaking excellence. I am a former SAT grader and instructor for high schoolers completing the English portion. I effectively argued for fairer SAT test scoring to change the prior system that was outdated.

Literature

I hold an English Literature and Language degree from the University of Michigan. I began my college literature endeavors at Grand Valley State University, where I quickly rise up getting excellent marks in English and History. I was there accepted into the Honors Program and Dean Listed. I transferred to Michigan after three full years at GVSU and took advanced English Literature coursework for two full additional years, until my graduation was effective in August of 1996. I studied a variety of genres, including eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century literature, and related history. I enjoyed most Modern American Women’s Literature and my Irish Literature Honors course, for which I drafted my senior thesis that received an A on Yeats’ Second Coming. My professor was the world-renowned expert on Yeats for many years, finding hidden manuscripts in his family attic during the 1990s. I am blessed to have received a University of Michigan Law degree and have worked for many large AMLAW 100 firms. I enjoy teaching and have taught K through twelve, including winning the regional tournament to take my Mock Trial Team to the Des Moines State Championship, during my first time as the PVJH teacher. I welcome all English Grammar, Spelling, Writing, Reading, and Literature students questions and coursework paths. We are in this together.
